TUI Group

The TUI Group is one of Europe's largest tour operators, encompassing global travel packages, flights, hotels and cruises. Group Companies own in the region of 130 aircraft, including the new 787 Dreamliner.

Their airline brands include Thomson, TUIfly, Jetairfly, Corsair and Arkefly, all of which sell Duty Free or Tax-Free goods on board. Airline inflight duty free shopping was pioneered by the travel charter operators back in the sixties, when vacations by air first started and inflight shopping became a major revenue stream.

You will often find a much larger range of goods, with lower prices on board a charter flight, than you will with a scheduled carrier, because these travel Firms see sales as an important revenue stream and added service for the customer.
