Hanover, 18 March 2008. The Supervisory Board of TUI AG met for its regular meeting, convened to approve the annual financial statements, today.

All options including a spin-off, merger or divestment as a single entity are going to be examined.

In this context, the interests of our shareholders, bondholders and employees are to be taken into account in an appropriate manner. At the same time, the Executive Board has been given the mandate to identify further growth options for the expansion of the tourism business.

TUI AG will present further information at its annual press briefing / analysts' meeting on the 2007 financial year held tomorrow, Tuesday 18 March 2008.
