Pandemic pushes holiday company TUI to 1.1 bln euro loss

LONDON, Aug 13 (Reuters) – TUI, the world’s largest tourism company, sunk to a 1.1 billion euro loss in its third quarter as the COVID-19 pandemic stopped it providing holidays, and said it had made progress with a cost cutting programme.

The company, which resumed holidays again in mid-June and said demand had returned, secured a second credit line from the German government on Wednesday, helping bolster its liquidity after COVID-19 wiped out revenues for three months.
