Sundio Group takes over Primavera with immediate effect

Both companies reached an agreement on Wednesday, March 1, 2017. This acquisition fits the development of the Sundio Group perfectly. Primavera will continue to grow as a brand under the Sundio-wings.

Addition of a strong brand with a history of more than 25 years.
Sundio is expanding its portfolio with the acquisition of Primavera and adds, in addition to its "flagship brands" Sunweb and Eliza Was Here, a very nice brand. Primavera has been providing the most beautiful vacations to Portugal for 25 years. The magnificent Algarve, the South Portuguese coast, the cozy capital of Lisbon on the Costa de Lisboa, the northern and scenic Porto, and the flower island Madeira.

No noticeable changes for Primavera customers and partners.Primavera continues to operate under her own name and all Primavera activities and employees are taken over. This company acquisition therefore does not bring any noticeable changes to Primavera customers nor the long-term partnerships with loyal partners such as Transavia will be touched.
