Kuoni Travel UK has stressed its operation will continue to operate as normal following news that Kuoni Group is to sell off its tour operating business.
Managing director Derek Jones and the current UK leadership team will remain in place to oversee the process and continue growth plans in the UK market, which recently has seen its retail network expand to 35 shops. Its digital presence has also been developed.
“In the UK market Kuoni has an enviable reputation as the market leader for worldwide travel. It’s very much business as usual right now for all our staff and customers. This is the busiest time for holiday bookings and right now our focus is on continuing to deliver brilliant holidays and service for all customers,” said Jones.
“We firmly believe that the outbound business can be better developed under new ownership and we’ll be working closely with our colleagues in Switzerland to make sure we find the right buyers,” he added.
Kuoni Travel UK was established 50 years ago and also incorporates Carrier, Kirker, Voyage Jules Verne, CV Villas and Journeys of Distinction.
