“Our 8 Tel Aviv routes, along with 14 Eilat Ovda routes, underline the commitment we have made to boosting Israeli tourism, traffic, and jobs and we look forward to continuing to work with Tourism Minister Yariv Levin (Likud) and his team to bring even more new routes to Israel in the coming years.
“To celebrate our new Tel Aviv route to Rome, we are releasing seats for sale from just €16.99, which are available for booking until midnight Sunday, July 30th.”
Tourism Minister Yariv Levin said “I am pleased that the collaboration between the Israel Tourism Ministry and the giant airline company Ryanair has intensified. Ryanair – which has identified the upward trend in incoming tourism to Israel – has expressed a great vote of confidence in the Israeli tourism product and is continuing to open new routes into Israel.”
“The significant entry of Ryanair into Israel is part of the great revolution that we are bringing to the tourism industry. It also serves as testament to the substantial improvement in Israel’s attractiveness as a tourism destination.
“This improvement finds its expression in the 28% increase in tourist entries from Italy to Israel, and in the record number of tourists visiting Israel from round the world that we have seen in recent months.”
