Holiday company TUI Group sees an ongoing recovery of bookings with demand for ski trips reaching pre-pandemic levels, the head of the group's German business told a newspaper today.

"All signs are pointing towards normalisation. Our customers have a lot of catching up to do after months of Corona restrictions," Stefan Baumert told the Funke newspapers.

"However, the booking situation is still a bit below previous levels."

For some segments the picture looks brighter.

In Germany, TUI is the biggest provider of ski travel and Baumert said demand in that category was virtually back at pre-pandemic levels.

"This segment was almost completely gone in 2020/21. Demand is more or less the same as it was before," he said.

He added that several destinations had been sought after over the Christmas and New Year period.
