VIA HANSA & BOREALIS – POSITIVE PROSPECTS FOR 2019

VIA HANSA & BOREALIS – POSITIVE PROSPECTS FOR 2019
21.12.2018

Via Hansa & Borealis is looking back on a very positive and successful year. The merger of the two companies at the end of last year has energized the whole company and created a lot of synergies. The combined company has seen growth in sales of over 8% in 2018, growth that is coming both from the traditional core markets and from new emerging markets. Not only have sales in the core business increased but also the two Guaranteed Departure brands of the company – World of Borealis and BALTICVISION – have had record years with very significant growth in sales, while the associated hotel business is reporting the same accelerating sales by over 30% for the 2018 season. The company is looking very positively at the prospects for 2019 as it continues substantial IT investments and investments in sales and marketing and is increasingly able to take advantage of its position as the largest regional DMC in the whole of Northern Europe. Demand for all of the destinations remains strong for 2019 and the company is expecting further growth, while at the same time the main focus will be on further innovation and refinement of the products and on further development of customer service. The management of the company takes this opportunity to thank the “old” customers who stayed loyal and expanded the business with Via Hansa & Borealis during the first complicated year of the merger – and the many “new” customers who have started to use our services in 2018.
