TUI France strengthens its leadership in Lille and offers Jetairfly flights to Cape Verde this winter



With its Jetairfly aircraft based on site, TUI France offers 71,000 departures to 19 touristic and beach destinations, including 5 new ones. And it strengthens its presence this winter, doubling the number of seats and opening a direct flight to Cape Verde.

Only tour operator to have an aircraft based 100% in Lesquin, TUI France is already leading from Lille, its first base in France after Paris. “We are very committed to our anchorage in the provinces and especially in Lille, which is renowned for its dynamism,” said President of TUI France Pascal de Izaguirre this Tuesday morning. A position likely to increase this summer as TUI (world leader of the tour operators) offers 7,000 more departures than last year, with 21 weekly flights to 19 destinations served directly (and at the end of the trip 37 Marmara clubs and 59 TUI Hotels & clubs). The new offer? Ibiza, Athens, Cyprus, Rhodes and Tenerife, considered safer than traditional destinations in Tunisia, Turkey or Egypt by customers seeking more than ever security.

For winter, doubling the number of seats (12,000 vs 6,000) will be accompanied by the opening of a weekly flight to Cape Verde, besides those to Fuerteventura, Agadir and Marrakech.

While wishing to become a digital brand (with a single website in late September, bringing the entire offer of its brands), TUI France also revised the concept of physical travel agencies, opening new generation agencies on the model of the Apple brand. The first TUI Store has just been inaugurated in Lille, close to the Grand Place. In total, there will be 5 of them in Lille and 52 in France in late September 2017. Open spaces enabling hosting of events and offering a space dedicated to “tailored travel” on the first floor.
