MarketLine Premium’s company strategy reports provide in-depth coverage of the performance and strategies of the world’s leading travel intermediary companies. The reports detail company operations in key geographies as well as comprehensive analysis of each company’s growth strategy and financial performance. Furthermore, the reports allow benchmarking company performance through the provision of key performance indicators including: number of customers, direct distribution mix and online mix.

Key Highlights
Strong distribution network helped it to strengthen its customer base

The company capitalizes on its strong distribution network which enables it to strengthen its customer base. Both direct distribution and online channels reported growth of 2% in 2016 over the previous year. The direct distribution mix (share of sales via own channels including online) increased from 70.0% in 2015 to 72.0% in 2016, whereas online mix (share of online sales) increased from 41.0% in 2015 to 43.0% in 2016.
Significant decline in the performance of the Northern Region led to a decline in overall revenue

The Northern Region is a major business segment of the company as it contributes 41.0% of the company’s total revenue. The segment reported a 6.1% decline in revenue to US$7.7 billion in 2016 as compared to US$8.2 billion in 2015. The EBITA declined by 14.2% to US$486.9 million in 2016. This was primarily due to weakening of exchange rates and intense competition from its counterparts in spite of reporting a 2.0% increase in customer volume in 2016. Revenue was also affected due to poor performance in the Nordic Region. Increasing price pressure and lower demand in Turkey also contributed to overall revenue decline.
Strategic initiatives allow the company to improve its profitability

Certain strategic initiatives were implemented by the company with the aim to enhance the company’s business operations and profitability. In December 2016, the company completed the acquisition of Transat to become a market leader in France. The deal adds two brands, Look Voyages and Vacances Transat to the company’s portfolio. In July 2016, the company ordered ten new 737 MAX 8s and one new 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft from Boeing with the aim to modernize and expand its airline business. In the same month, the company entered into a contract with Etihad Aviation Group to establish a strong European leisure airline group to offer point-to-point flying services connecting major tourist markets. In November 2016, the company launched its fourth TUI Blue Pulse Schladming hotel in Austria, strengthening its product portfolio. The company also plans to launch Il Castelfalfi - TUI Blue Selection in March 2017.
