The new Atlas Airtours catalogue, called simply “Winter”, boasts an extended offer of ski schools with innovative training approach, eventful season openings, special weekend and New Year packages, top deals for France by bus, as well as many other extra values for our clients.

The “Winter” catalogue by Croatia’s biggest tour operator Atlas Airtours, a member of Group, features numerous attractive destinations throughout Austria, Italy, France, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Switzerland… The entire offer, presented on 159 pages, includes a rich programme of ski season openings, a choice of special New Year and weekend packages, ski schools in Slovenia, Austria and Italy, France and Bulgaria by bus and Atlas Airtours ski weeks in France.

New format and visual identity of the catalogue enables end users to book their holiday faster, easier and more efficiently. Deals bear labels indicating particular value or interest, such as best buy for accommodation with the optimal price to value ratio, hit for accommodation that year after year attracts a large number of Atlas Airtours clients, new for accommodation that has been newly included in the Atlas Airtours offer and exclusive for accommodation that can be booked exclusively through Atlas Airtours. Apart from that, Atlas Airtours clients will for the first time be offered MPC – a special offer for holders of MultiPlusCard (when booking certain accommodation units, Atlas Airtours clients earn extra points on the card, which in turn earn them reward vouchers).

The expansion continued in 2005, when the company entered German, Dutch and Slovenian markets by taking over ID Riva Tours Gmbh, Odisej and Ilirika Turizem travel agencies. A further step towards enlargement of the Group had been made in 2006, when ATLAS Travel Agency and Kompas JSC, present at more than 26 markets, became members of Group. Jolly Travel, Serbia’s leading tour operator, joined the Group in 2007.
