I've heard that Airtours will be rebranded "MyTravel" in the near future. This includes the airline, holiday firm etc. Not heard much else about it.

AIH are a part of the My Travel group, their logos are plastered over most airports - nice big one at BHX  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Looks like someone BIg in the airline industry got their hands on MS Paint again - like the ppl who designed the TUI livery.

Why do they even need to rebrand it? People know the Airtours name and know it for having a safe record.

Having flown DK=Premiair a few time, I guess a more appropriate name will be

PREMITIVEAIR

Wouldnt it be better to rebrand Premiar as Airtours seeing as Airtours own them (I believe).

I hope they dont make some disasterous livery change like Britannia! Their new colours (or should that be "colour"  Smile ) are just AWFUL and sooooooooooooo boring! what does everyone else think?

Airtours is a perfect name....I can't believe they would want to give it up.

Hopefully they won't change the livery....the Airtours/Premiair livery is very smart. Colourful as you would expect from a charter airline but also well known & recognizable.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

it's a shame that Britannia has to be saddled with a sister airline like Hapag-Lloyd! For a charter airline Britannia are excellent, whereas Hapag-Lloyd are OK, but nowhere near as good as BY...what do you all think?

My Travel ?!?!?!
What kind of name is that for an airline? Sounds more like an icon on your desktop.

Just an article from the Mail On Sunday...

Airtours to take off as MyTravel
Jeremy Skidmore, Mail on Sunday 14 October 2001

AIRTOURS is to change its name to MyTravel, an internal document reveals. Going Places and Travelworld shops will be rebranded MyTravel next month.

In February, the company will seek shareholder approval for the name change to take effect next spring. The airline, Airtours International, will also be rebranded, with the Airtours name kept only for the company's mass-market tour operation.

The document, circulated to a handful of managers and obtained by Financial Mail, says: 'Airtours plc no longer conveys the size and scope of our group of companies.' The company inherited the name MyTravel after last year's £240m purchase of US company TSI, but until now it was expected to be used only as a sub-brand of Airtours.


Still don't know what "rebrand" means, will the airline remain as Airtours or not?
