TUI Fly flies from Lille to Tenerife, but seemingly they also stop in Fuerteventura on the way back. The same on other days but a stop in Lanzarote.

Is this correct and some charter operation? Or a booking engine mistake?

Those triangular flights are absolutely normal. If one destination in the Canary Islands doesn't have enough customers to fill a plane, a second destination in the same region is added. A full plane makes flights cheaper for the passenger.

Yeah, I know they do that often, but these flights from Lille to Fuerteventura or Lanzarote are not bookable on TUIFly.be or TUI.be

For certain routes - like the triangle ones - TUI wants to keep the seats for passengers with a travel package. That gives them a better profit margin then selling the seats as ticket only.

Yeah, but when I select a travel package on TUI.be, these flights arent showing up, only flights from Brussels. So if the routing is correct it should be only offline packages then or seats for French travel agents

Very simple, almost all seats are sold as part of a holiday package, so not many seats left. If at the last minute packages go unsold, remaining seats may become cheaper.

Several years ago, Neos was the Italian TUI airline. They must have kept a good relationship.
