The well-known founder of the JT Touristik travel agency built the company into a familiar
brand in the tourism sector. Nevertheless, an application for insolvency followed in the
summer of 2017. The PLUTA restructuring experts ensured during the proceedings that
more than 10,000 trips went ahead for more than 30,000 holidaymakers. A solution followed
in late 2017 – the business was sold to the discounter Lidl, which strengthened its own travel
business with the acquisition. All jobs were saved through the solution, and the familiar JT
Touristik brand is still in use.
