On Wednesday (January 25, 2023), the Board of Airlines Representatives (BARIG) announced the addition of Dorint Hotel Group as a new Business partner in the hospitality section of their cross-industrial network. Effective since January 1st, 2023, the new partnership with Dorint GmbH will further strengthen the exchange between the hospitality industry and BARIG member airlines. The announcement follows a significant economic recovery since summer 2022, with increasing business and leisure travel, following two difficult years resulting from the global COVID-19 pandemic.

In Wednesday’s announcement, BARIG’s Chairman and Executive Director, Michael Hoppe, said,

“We are delighted to welcome Dorint, which is a renowned traditional company within the hotel industry with more than 60 years of experience, as part of our business partner network. Fortunately, travel volumes have been increasing strongly, which means that intensive networking of different players within the travel chain is also becoming more important again. With formats such as our BARIG Full Board meetings and other events, we provide the right communication and exchange platforms between our business partners from the hotel industry and our more than 100 member airlines.”

Also commenting on the new business partnership, Dorint GmbH’s Regional Director, Kirsten Stolle, said,

“As one of the leading German hotel companies, the continuous exchange with various stakeholders of the travel industry is particularly important to us. We are looking forward to the cooperation with BARIG and are convinced that the partnership has great potential for both sides. Eventually, the past two years have shown how important a good cohesion within the tourism sector is in order to address topics collectively.”

Based in Cologne, The Dorint Hotel Group is one of Germany’s leading hotel companies, operating under the brands, ‘Dorint Hotels & Resorts’, Homepage Luxury Hotels Collection’, and ‘Essential by Dorint.’ The company currently operates 66 properties, including three in Switzerland and two in Austria.
