In 2024, TUI's plans are to bring more than two million tourists to the Balearics, a record number that exceeds the current 1.9 million.

On Wednesday, senior TUI and hotelier representatives held a meeting at the Blue Sensatori Biomar Hotel in Sa Coma to analyse the 2023 season and to outline plans for 2024. The forecast of more than two million tourists is based on this year's success and holiday demand for 2024 in the European tourist markets. As well as Germany and the UK, these include the Scandinavian countries, Benelux, Austria, Switzerland and Ireland.
