Destination Management

Partnered with the world’s largest name in travel, TUI, and with over third decade of experience, Aitken Spence provides the best travel experience in Sri Lanka.



together with TUI

Our 35 year alliance with TUI Travel PLC; a world leader in leisure travel, strongly illustrates the Company’s approach towards partnerships. In 1978, Aitken Spence entered into an agreement with the German company; then in its nascent stages. While both organizations grew individually and together, the association was mutually beneficial, for TUI was reaching for markets beyond its borders and the operators it was acquiring were already agencies under the Aitken Spence umbrella. The result was that almost 55% of the Company’s business was coming through TUI by the mid-90’s. The natural progression of this relationship built on rust and expertise, saw Aitken Spence and TUI go into a joint venture in 2004, further cementing a partnership that has only grown from strength to strength since its inception.


While we have a 50 % joint venture partnership with TUI, Aitken Spence Travels also successfully represents over 200 leading tour operators from across the globe. Some of these partnerships with market leaders in their respective countries span several decades.
