In Spain alone, 144 buses out of a total of 179 vehicles have already been provided with the new look. The paintwork is based on the colours of the travel company's airlines. Like the TUI aircraft, the newly-painted buses will thus now come in the uniform, wavy TUI design. The bodywork of the vehicles will be designed in white, light blue and dark blue waves. They will be joined by the brand name TUI in large red letters. "Each bus will require 20 litres of paint and the work will take 80 hours", reports Jose Luis Lombardi, Transport Manager Balearics. "In other words, one worker will therefore be busy for two weeks painting one bus". On Majorca, in addition, seven buses have received a special branding. They are also painted in red, purple and yellow, and stand for the seven different hotel brands and concepts of the group: TUI Blue, Robinson, TUI Magic Life, RIU, TUI Sensimar, TUI Sensatori and TUI Family Life.
In total, the TUI bus fleet employs 455 drivers, 55 mechanics and cleaning personnel as well as 100 employees in the area of "Administration and Operations". They demonstrated their full operational capability especially in 2010, when the Icelandic volcano with the unpronounceable name of Eyjafjallajökull paralysed the entire European air traffic. At the time, TUI employees transported hundreds of stranded holidaymakers home from Spain, for example, with bus convoys.
