TUI Travel is expected to issue a positive pre-close trading update on Wednesday after an upbeat first quarter.
In February, the travel operator said it narrowed its underlying operating loss by £8m to £108m on the back robust trading with growth in January bookings.
Demand for unique holidays and an increase in online bookings helped drive results in the first quarter.
At the time the group said it remained confident of delivering an increase in full-year underlying operating profit growth of 7-10%, adding that mainstream bookings for summer 2014 were up 1% against tough comparatives with average selling prices up 3%.
Germany and the UK were reported to have been particularly strong.
"We have some concerns about the Nordics, where Kuoni reported some disappointing results on 18 March, and political trouble in Thailand, Ukraine and Egypt may have taken the edge off the performance," Numis said on Tuesday.
"Overall, however, we expect another positive trading update."
The broker issued a 'hold' rating and a target price of 425p.
