Additionally, Tui said it has been approached by shareholders to discuss whether its LSE listing structure is “optimal and advantageous” and is considering upgrading to a “Prime Standard” listing in Frankfurt with inclusion on the MDAX index. A resolution may be put forward at its next annual general meeting in February.

The company cited the strong full-year results and continued growth and improvements across its divisions for its optimistic outlook. Tui said it expects revenue to increase by at least 10% this financial year, with underlying EBIT to rise by at least 25% year-on-year. While noting the current macro environment, Tui said overall customer demand remains strong.
