For the next summer season 2017 TUI announced that will use easyJet flights on selected routes.
TUI Germany passengers flying from Berlin-Schönefeld (SXF) to various destinations in Greece will board easyJet airplanes starting the next summer. Travel group and low cost company have announced closer cooperation. easyJet will set a quota of seats for TUI’s summer 2007 schedule. Initially it will fly to Greece (Crete and Rhodes) but also to Tenerife.
TUI Netherlands also announced similar plans which will use easyJet flights from Amsterdam-Schiphol (AMS) to various European destinations.
The idea behind this kind of arrangement is to offer cheaper flights while budget airlines have firm sales on a selected number of tickets.
