It sold off many of its industrial concerns and purchased several major travel and transportation firms.

Today it is one of the world's largest tourist firms with interests across Europe. It owns travel agencies, hotels, airlines, cruise ships, retail stores, and container ships. Major subsidiaries include TUI AG Airlines, the largest holiday fleet in Europe. Its common brand TUIfly encompasses 7 airlines.
