Overall, 3.3 million customers went on vacation with TUI in the first quarter of 2023. This is one million more than the same period last year, but still 400,000 less than in 2019. TUI was able to significantly increase its sales to 3.8 billion euros. This is an increase of 37% compared to the previous year and even more than in 2019.
