ANTALYA, Turkey and DUISBURG, Germany, May 26, 2011 -

- German tour operator posts business record

alltours, the fourth-largest tour operator in Germany, brought more than
45,000 tourists to the Turkish Riviera last winter. This is more tourists
than have ever been recorded since the founding of alltours in 1974. Sales
and guest numbers have increased by 70% compared to the winter of 09/10.

"Our overall growth of 16% in sales and profit during the winter is
primarily due to business in Turkey in addition to the above-average growth
in Spain. Thanks to excellent hotels and outstanding spa facilities, the
Turkish Riviera has long been a popular winter destination," said alltours
managing director Willi Verhuven.

alltours continues to invest in its Turkey program in order to secure
long-term growth. The number of beds offered by alltours exclusively on the
German market was increased by 20%. The signs point toward growth, even with
flight planning. Additional full charter flights will fly to Antalya during
summer. Due to the high demand, an additional three full charter flights from
Hamburg (2) and DĂĽsseldorf have already been put on sale for the autumn
holiday flights.

The West Aegean is very popular in the Dutch market. For this reason,
alltours has increased the number of airports with service to Izmir by 25%
for the summer. In the summer, alltours will offer trips to the holiday area
of Didim for the first time. alltours has also expanded its city hotel
program in Bodrum. The "Blue Voyage" is also new to the program: a one-week
holiday on a sailing vessel. The route runs along the impressive Taurus
Mountains. "Not only have we achieved the best winter season in the company's
history, but we have also achieved the best Turkey winter season since our
founding," said alltours managing director Willi Verhuven.
