Interim Management Report

Summary

Record Q2 2024 performance, delivering highest ever revenues of €3.6bn and strong improvement in Q2 underlying EBIT by €53.6m to €-188.7m[1]. Following our strong performance in H1 and as we see the positive trends in our business continuing in H2, we reconfirm our FY24 guidance to increase our underlying EBIT by at least 25%.

 

  • Q2 Group revenue of €3.6bn was a record for the period1 with strong growth of +16% versus prior year (Q2 2023: €3.2bn). It underlined the strength of demand for our product portfolio at improved prices across our businesses.
  • As a result, the Group’s underlying EBIT for Q2 improved strongly by +€53.6m to €-188.7m. This emphasises the progress we have made as a business in executing and advancing our strategy for the Group.
    • Hotels & Resorts achieved a record performance in the quarter1, reflecting significant operational growth driven by higher bed nights at improved rates.
    • Similarly, our Cruises segment also delivered a record result for Q21, buoyed by significant growth. This achievement was marked by higher occupancies and improved rates within a strong trading environment.
    • TUI Musement continues to drive forward digitalisation and differentiated product innovation, reporting higher customer volumes.
    • In Markets & Airlines demand remained resilient with customer volumes ahead for all Regions and prices continuing to track higher. Results were however influenced by the absence of the prior year’s positive contribution from Canada, following the sale of the tour operator business.   
  • A total of 2.8m customers travelled with TUI during the quarter, +14% more than in the prior year. Average load factor of 93% for Q2 2024 again achieved the high levels of the prior year.
  • Our net debt position further improved year-on-year by +€1.1bn to €3.1bn at 31 March 2024 (31 March 2023: €4.2bn). This improvement reflects foremost net proceeds (following repayment of the final WSF obligations) from our capital increase in April 2023 and a positive operational cash flow in the last twelve months since 31 March 2023.
  • We remain committed to improving our cash flow position and maintaining strict cost and investment discipline, with the target to restore our balance sheet strength and improve our credit metrics.
  • During the quarter, we successfully issued €500 million sustainability-linked senior notes, as part of our target to fully return and debt-finance the remaining KfW Revolving Credit Facility (RCF).
  • In February 2024, we saw a further improvement in our credit rating, which was upgraded to B+ by S&P and B1 by Moody’s, with both noting a positive outlook. These upgrades reflect the operational and financial progress made by the business to date.
  • Bookings in Markets & Airlines[2] continue to be well ahead year-on-year, highlighting the resilience of demand for our product offering. The Winter 2023/24 season closed with a strong lates market. Bookings were at +9% with average selling price (ASP) holding up well at +3%. Bookings for the Summer 2024 season continue to be promising, with 60% of the season sold. Bookings taken to date are +5% higher, supported by increased prices, up +4%.
  • Holiday Experiences trading[3] remains well on track to deliver in line with expectations. Both our Hotels & Resorts and Cruises segments in particular, continue to benefit from strong demand.
  • Our hedging levels for the coming Summer and Winter seasons remain in line with our normal hedging policy.

 

 

 

FY 2024 guidance[4]

Our focus is on operational excellence and execution as well as the continued transformation. Our strategic roadmap, the strong operational recovery and the measures taken to strengthen our balance sheet, lay the foundations for future profitable growth. Our guidance for FY 2024 is based on the strong performance in H1 with underlying EBIT up +€232m[5] supported by a significant improvement in Hotels and Cruises and by the return to our normal hedging policy in our Markets & Airlines. We see the positive trends in our business continuing in H2, but also recognise the current macroeconomic as well as geopolitical uncertainties especially in the Middle East, with 40% of the Summer 2024 left to sell. We therefore reconfirm our guidance for FY 2024 as published in our Annual Report 2023:

  • We expect revenue to increase by at least +10% year-on-year
  • We expect underlying EBIT to increase by at least +25% year-on-year

 

Mid-Term Ambitions

We have a clear strategy to accelerate profitable growth by increasing the customer lifetime value, creating a business which is more agile, more cost-efficient and achieving a higher speed to market with the aim to create additional shareholder value. Our mid-term ambitions are as follows:

  • Generate underlying EBIT growth of c. +7-10% CAGR
  • Target net leverage[6] strongly below 1.0x
  • Return to a credit rating territory in line with our pre-pandemic rating BB/Ba (S&P/Moody’s)

 

Sustainability (ESG) as an opportunity[7]

  • As an industry leader, we want to set the standard for sustainability in the market. We believe that sustainable transformation should not be viewed solely as a cost factor, but that sustainability pays off – for society, for the environment, and for economic development. We continue to make progress to reduce relative emissions and to achieve our targets. These include:
  • The launch of a new Group Policy on Diverse, Sustainable and Ethical Sourcing. This policy sets targets and gives guidance for all procurement regarding emission reduction, energy usage, circular economy, plastic use, water conservation and design for re-use. It encompasses a broader ESG agenda, where diversity, equality, inclusion and ethical conduct are paramount. The policy will support our goal to be a catalyst for positive change.
  • TUI Blue is working with tech company KITRO to reduce food waste through technology. Leftover food is weighed and analysed with the help of artificial intelligence. This year, the new process will be rolled out to 12 hotels in Germany, Austria, Turkey, Tunisia, Morocco and Croatia. The aim is to reduce food waste in hotels by 25 percent by 2030.
  • TUI fosters socially responsible tourism, addressing concerns about scarce living space and environmental impact. We operate organised packaged tourism that impacts local living space less, whilst we feel the current critism is directed at the unregulated individual tourism on the Canaries. TUI is also committed to minimising hotel emissions, reduce water consumption significantly, and investing in solar systems, within the next decade. Despite protests highlighting issues such as rising housing prices and resource consumption, the general sentiment towards tourists remains positive. We continue our efforts to balance tourism benefits with community well-being.

The present Half Year Financial Report 2024 is based on TUI Group’s reporting structure set out in the Consolidated Financial Statements of TUI AG as at 30 September 2023. See TUI Group Annual Report 2023 from page 28.

Due to the re-segmentation of an IT company from Western Region to All other segments in the current year the previous periods have been adjusted by €0.8m.

 

  • H1 2024 Group revenue was €8.0bn, up +15.2% (H1 2023: €6.9bn). The Group's H1 2024 seasonal operating loss (underlying EBIT) declined by 53.8% to €-182.7m (H1 2023: €-395.3m).

 

Trading update Markets & Airlines[8] – Customer demand is proving to be resilient. Strong lates market for Winter season, with both bookings and ASP well ahead year-on-year, Summer season continues to be promising reflected by increased bookings and ASP

 

  • The Winter 2023/24 season closed with bookings up +9%. Notably, ASP also held up well at +3% in a strong lates market.
  • A total of 5.1m bookings were taken across our source markets for the season, with +0.7m added since our Q1 2024 update in February 2024.
  • Short- and medium destinations proved to be most popular with our customers, with the Canaries and Egypt once again key destinations and demand for Cape Verde continuing to grow.
  • Bookings across all our source markets were higher and notably both our key markets in UK and Germany reported increased bookings levels compared to our last update as the season ended with ASP ahead of Winter 2022/23. In UK bookings closed up +11%, whilst bookings in Germany finished +10% higher.

  • We are pleased to report, that current indications for Summer 2024[9] continue to be promising, with 60% of the programme sold, which is in line with Summer 2023.
  • With +3.9m bookings added since our last update in February, we have now taken a total of 9.0m bookings for the season to date. This is an increase of +5%, with our key markets ahead of prior year.
  • ASP of +4% continues to be ahead and holding the level reported in February 2024.
  • Demand for medium- and short-haul destinations continues to drive bookings, with all destinations reporting higher sales against Summer 2023. Greece, Turkey and the Balearics are once again proving to be the most sought-after destinations for the summer break.
  • UK sales are +3% ahead with 65% of the season sold to date. In our other key market Germany sales are well ahead at +7% with 60% of the season sold.
  • We continue to closely monitor geopolitical events as they unfold, especially concerning the Middle East and around the Arabian Peninsula. Our flexible business model allows us the option to adjust capacity from the eastern to western Mediterranean should there be a further escalation of the conflict in this region which has a significant and prolonged effect on customer demand.

  • Hotels & Resorts – Number of available bed nights[11] for H2 is up +1%, supported by an earlier start to the season. Booked occupancy[12] to date is +1%pt ahead as the strong demand for our hotel portfolio witnessed in the prior year continues. Average daily rates[13]are well ahead across our key brands, with overall rates up +9% for H2. Key destinations for the half-year are expected to be Turkey, Greece and the Balearics.
  • Cruises – Our three brands will continue to operate a full fleet of initially sixteen ships over the summer period, with Mein Schiff 7 joining the TUI Cruises fleet in June. Available passenger cruise days[14] on offer in H2 are +6% supported by the additional ship for TUI Cruises and despite the cancellation of some itineraries around the Arabian Peninsula impacting our operational improvement in the second half of the financial year. Booked occupancy[15]rates are up +7%pts across both businesses, supported by stronger demand for the itineraries on sale. As a result, average daily rates[16] for H2 are ahead by between +3% and +5% across the individual cruise lines and at +2% overall, due to a change in the brand mix with the additional new ship for Mein Schiff and transfer of Marella Voyager within the segment. For the summer season Cruises offers a broad range of routes. Mein Schiff, with its fleet of seven ships, will sail to the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Baltic Sea and North America, with the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises programme focusing on Europe, North America, Asia as well as voyages to the Arctic, based on a fleet of five vessels. Marella, with its fleet of five ships will operate itineraries across the Mediterranean.
  • TUI Musement – We are continuing the expansion of our Tours and Activities business, increasing our range of B2C experiences as well as growing our B2B business with partners and anticipate a higher volume of transfers and experiences sales supported by our Markets & Airlines business. Bookings for our experiences business, providing excursions, activities and tickets are expected to increase by a high single digit percentage for H2. The transfer business providing support and services to our guests in their destination, is expected to develop in line with our Markets & Airlines capacity assumptions. 

 

 

Strategic priorities

We continue to drive forward our TUI Group strategy as outlined in the Annual Report 2023[17]. Our aim is to grow a scalable and global tourism business and we have ambitious profitability targets.

 

Within this framework we are transforming the business and have recently achieved further milestones. These include the following:

  • The growth of our hotel portfolio is driven by a strong pipeline of hotels. Our target is to sign around ten new hotels per quarter. By the end of the financial year, we aim to add around 20 new hotels to the business in line with our asset right growth strategy. As part of this strategy, we recently announced the opening of our first Robinson Club in the trend destination Vietnam. In addition, we are strengthening our presence across Sub-Saharan Africa. After launching our new luxury brand “The Mora” on Zanzibar, a further project is planned in East Africa where we have signed for our first TUI Blue hotel in Kenya.
  • In Cruises our product growth is driven by investment into new build ships by our TUI Cruises joint venture. In June the first of three new ships sets sail. The Mein Schiff 7 adds almost three thousand berths to the fleet. It will be powered by marine diesel and in the future is planned to run on green methanol. Itineraries during the first summer season will focus on Northern Europe and Baltic Sea voyages, whilst in the upcoming winter season routes will be around the Canaries.
  • Through TUI Musement, the Group has a scalable platform in the tours and activities market. Recently, we announced that the business will be the new partner for online travel agent loveholidays. TUI Musement will power a digital platform with a curated portfolio of thousands of excursions, activities and attraction tickets, which customers of the OTA can now directly access. The offering to loveholidays customers includes options from the TUI Collection range developed by the TUI team. Furthermore, loveholidays customers can book National Geographic Day Tours, which have been created by TUI in collaboration with National Geographic Expeditions.
  • In Markets & Airlines we have delivered further progress in increasing the volume and proportion of dynamic packaging and supply, to deliver choice, flexibility and hence growth, without increasing operational leverage. A key example of this is our co-operation with Ryanair, announced in February 2024, which means TUI customers will be able to choose from an even wider range of flights when booking their trip. We have also further expanded the dynamic supply of accommodation and flights with multiple other suppliers. In addition, we have made further progress on quality, delivering a net promoter score of 52 in April year to date.

We also aim to further improve our net leverage, focusing on optimising working capital and cash from operations and maintaining disciplined capital expenditure through asset right and joint venture growth. This will support improving the structure of our balance sheet with the aim to bring our net leverage[18] down well below 1.0x in the mid-term. In this context, we successfully issued €500 million sustainability-linked senior notes during the quarter with a coupon of 5.875%. This issuance is part of our target to fully return and debt-finance the remaining KfW Revolving Credit Facility (RCF). The issue proceeds have been used to repay existing liabilities, reduce the KfW credit line and cover expenses associated with the bond. The coupon of the notes is linked to the achievement of a specific sustainability target, which is to reduce TUI Group’s Airlines CO2e-emissions per Revenue Passenger Kilometer[19] by at least 11% by the end of the financial year ending on 30 September 2026 (compared to the financial year that ended 30 September 2019). In February 2024, we saw a further improvement in our credit rating, which was upgraded to B+ by S&P and B1 by Moody’s, with both noting a positive outlook. These upgrades reflect the operational and financial progress made by the business to date.

The Hotels & Resorts portfolio is well-diversified in terms of product offer, destination mix and ownership models, and benefits from multi-channel and multi-source market distribution via Markets & Airlines, direct to customer,

and via third parties such as Online Travel Agents (OTAs) and tour operators mainly outside our own source markets.

 

H1 2024 total revenue grew to €865.1m, an improvement of +16.4% (H1 2023: €742.9m). As a result, H1 2024 underlying EBIT of €208.1m was up +€58.4m (H1 2023: €149.7m) continuing the strong development of the segment post pandemic.

 

In Q2 2024 the segment achieved the highest ever total revenue of €416.7m1, an increase of +16.3% (Q2 2023: €358.2m), predominantly due to higher bed nights and increased rates. As a result, the business contributed a record Q2 underlying EBIT of €117.4m[20], up +€39.4m (Q2 2023: €78.0m). Results were driven in particular by a stronger operational performance across our key hotel brands and in particular for Riu. The Canaries, Cape Verde and Mexico continue to be popular destinations with our guests during this winter period, achieving high volumes at improved rates.  

 

In the quarter a total of 7.6m available bed nights (capacity) were on offer equating to an increase of +9% and reflecting higher capacities in particular for Riu, as a result of fewer hotel renovations. Occupancy rates for the segment continue to maintain their high levels especially for our key brands. Overall occupancy was at 81%, which was -2%pts, due to higher available bed nights and the earlier opening in some of the Other hotels. Our hotels in the Caribbean achieved the highest occupancies, rising +4%pts to 96%.

 

Q2 2024 average daily rate rose by +9% to €109 supported by an improvement across our key brands.

The Cruises segment comprises the joint venture TUI Cruises in Germany, which operates cruise ships under the brands Mein Schiff and Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, and Marella Cruises in UK. These three brands cover the cruises sector from premium all-inclusive to luxury and expeditions, with leading positions in the German-speaking and UK markets and benefitting from multi-channel distribution via Markets & Airlines, direct to customer as well as via third parties. As in the previous year, the segment operated a full fleet of 16 ships during the quarter.

 

Cruises revenue only includes Marella Cruises, as TUI Cruises is reported at equity. Revenue in H1 2024 increased by +49.3% to €383.8m (H1 2023: €257.1m). H1 2024 underlying EBIT for the segment (including the equity result of TUI Cruises) improved to €104.5m, an increase of +€89.6m (H1 2023: €15.0m).

 

Q2 2024 revenue reflecting Marella Cruises only, rose to €216.9m, up +52.9% (Q2 2023: €141.9m). Q2 2024 underlying EBIT (including the equity result of TUI Cruises), was a record €70.1m[21], increasing +€55.3m (Q2 2023: €14.8m), as both TUI Cruises and Marella Cruises maintained their positive development. TUI Cruises achieved an EAT (Earning after Tax) of €43.6m, +€25.2m higher (Q2 2023: €18.4m). Key contributors to this improvement were foremost higher occupancies and rates. Available passenger cruise days for the segment of 2.3m were -3% overall (Q2 2023: 2.4m), due to a change in itineraries.

 

Mein Schiff – Mein Schiff operated their full fleet of six ships during the quarter compared to a fleet of seven vessels in the prior year following the transfer of Mein Schiff Herz to Marella Cruises in the prior year. The brand offered itineraries to the Canaries, the Orient, the Caribbean, Central America, Asia and Northern Europe. Occupancy of the operated fleet continued to improve, reaching 100% in the period under review (Q2 2023: 93%), which was above pre-pandemic levels. At €169, the average daily rate was +25% higher (Q2 2023: €136). Both performance indicators emphasis the strong demand for our German language, premium all-inclusive product.

 

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises – The brand is a leading provider of luxury and expeditions cruises in German speaking markets. As in the prior year, the fleet comprised two luxury liners and three expedition cruise ships. During the quarter itineraries were focused on Europe, the Americas, the Caribbean, South Pacific as well as voyages to Antarctica. Q2 occupancy of the fleet was 77% (Q2 2023: 67%), underlining the growth in demand for these cruises. Q2 average daily rate was €772, -1% year-on-year (Q2 2023: €780) as a result of increased occupancy.

 

Marella Cruises – Our UK brand offers a range of cruise experiences, with a fully all-inclusive fleet. Following the commissioning of the Marella Voyager, formerly Mein Schiff Herz, which complimented the fleet last year in time for the Summer 2023 season, the brand is now made up of five vessels. During the quarter, Marella Cruises operated itineraries to the Canaries, the Caribbean, as well as Asia. The Q2 average daily rate for the business of £197 was up +9% (Q2 2023: £181), whilst occupancy rose by 4%pts. to 99%, versus a prior year Q2 of 95%, emphasising the growing popularity of this product.

Q2 2024 revenue increased by +14.7% to €149.5m (Q2 2023: €130.3m) underlining the growth in this segment and the advantage of our integrated model as well as growth of third-party sales via B2B partners utilising the TUI Musement platform technology. Underlying EBIT of €-16.5m was €-3.7m (Q2 2023: €-12.7m), as the business continues to focus on the expansion of its B2C experiences offering, while also increasing B2B partnerships and higher transfer and experiences volumes to our Markets & Airlines business, as well as the growth of its differentiated own product portfolio globally.

 

The number of guest transfers in the destinations rose by +14% to 3.9m (Q2 2023: 3.4m). Additionally, 1.5m experiences were sold in the quarter, up +9% (Q2 2023: 1.3m), as the business continues to grow.

Our Markets & Airlines business covers the whole customer journey. We differentiate ourselves from the competition (such as tour operators, OTAs, hotels and airlines) based on our products, services, customer care and trust, and by following a customer-centric approach.

 

H1 2024 revenue of €6,721.6m was 13.5% higher (H1 2023: €5,923.2m). H1 2024 underlying EBIT was €-421.5m, reflecting the usual winter season loss for the sector and was an improvement of €80.9m (H1 2023: €-502.4m).

 

Q2 2024 revenue of €3,034.1m, the highest ever for the quarter[22], rose by +14.1% (Q2 2023: €2,660.0m). Demand remains resilient, with volumes +14% ahead for all Regions and prices continuing to track higher across our product offering and up +3% for the quarter. As expected, whilst results benefitted from a return to normal hedging conditions, results in Q2 were also impacted by prior year still being supported by positive results from our tour operator venture in Canada, which was sold in May 2023. As a consequence Q2 2024 underlying EBIT was €-17.6m lower at €-326.1m (Q2 2023: €-308.5m).   

 

In particular the Canaries, Mainland Spain, Egypt and Cape Verde proved to be highly sought after destinations from our short- and medium-haul programme. Mexico, Thailand, and the Dominican Republic again underlined their popularity as long-haul destinations with our customer.  

 

In the quarter, customer volumes increased by 339k to 2,778k. Average load factor of 93% for Q2 2024, again achieved the high levels of the prior year quarter (Q2 2023: 93%).

 

Our strategic initiative to accelerate the Group’s transformation into a digital platform business continues to take shape. We remain focused on enhancing our app, and in particular our native book flows, targeting further growth in the proportion of digital sales made in-app. During the reported period, TUI app sales made up 6.8% of total sales, increasing across all markets and rising significantly overall by a total of 55%. Demand for our dynamically packaged products, providing our customers with greater choice and flexibility, also continues to grow, supported by the roll-out of our group-wide platforms. In total, 0.4m of our customers chose to enjoy a dynamically packaged product in the quarter, up 30% (Q2 2023: 0.3m).

Financial position and net assets

Cash Flow / Net capex and investments / Net debt

TUI Group's operating cash outflow in H1 2024 of €268.5m decreased by 5.6% year-on-year This reflects the lower Group loss, which was partly offset by a higher cash outflow for prepayments for touristic services.

 

Net debt as at 31 March 2024 of €3.1bn decreased by €1.1bn compared to previous year level (31 March 2024: €4.2bn). This improvement was mainly driven by net proceeds (following repayment of the final WSF obligations) from our capital increase in April 2023 and the positive cash flow from operating activities in the last twelve months since 31 March 2023.

2 Thereof €73.5m related to the pro rata capital injection into Pep Toni Hotels S.A. in Q2 2024

 

Cash gross capex in H1 2024 of €297.7m was €7.3m lower year-on-year. The increase in the Hotel & Resorts segment was mainly due to higher investments at Riu. In the period under review, financial investments of €73.5m related to the pro rata capital injection into Pep Toni Hotels S. A. Net capex and investments totaling €320.1m in H1 2024 increased by €102.3m compared to the previous year.

Non-current financial liabilities increased from €580.7m at 30 September 2023 to €1,779.2m at 31 March2024. This increase primarily results from an increase in liabilities to banks and from the issuance of a sustainability-linked bond in March 2024.

Comments on the consolidated income statement

In the first six months of financial year 2024, TUI Group's revenue was strongly higher than in H1 2023, due to a year-on-year increase in pax numbers and higher average prices, in particular in Markets & Airlines. TUI Group’s results generally also reflect the significant seasonal swing in tourism between the winter and summer travel months.

 

In H1 2024, consolidated revenue increased by €1.0bn year-on-year to €8.0bn.

Alternative performance measures

The Group’s main financial KPI is underlying EBIT. We define the EBIT in underlying EBIT as earnings before interest, income taxes and the result from the measurement of the Group’s interest hedges. EBIT by definition includes goodwill impairments.

 

In calculating Underlying EBIT from EBIT, we adjust for separately disclosed items (including any goodwill impair-ment) and expenses from purchase price allocations. Separately disclosed items include adjustments for income and expense items that reflect amounts and frequencies of occurrence rendering an evaluation of the operating profitability of the segments and Group more difficult or causing distortions. These items include gains on disposal of financial investments, significant gains and losses from the sale of assets as well as significant restructuring and integration expenses and any goodwill impairments. Effects from purchase price allocations, ancillary acquisition costs and conditional purchase price payments are adjusted. Expenses from purchase price allocations relate to the amortisation of intangible assets from acquisitions made in previous years.
