Download PDF for this date

The booming tourist activity in Israel is expected to reach a new peak in July and the rest of the summer, reports from the Ministry of Tourism indicate.

In the first 12 days of July, 50,000 tourists passed through Lydda Airport, nearing the total number of tourists arriving last December, which set the record. All flights from the United States and Europe are booked to the end of the summer, and hotels are loaded to capacity.
