IMTM Promotes Open Skies Tourism Flourish

07 February 2017


The IMTM is the largest annual professional tourism fair of its kind in the Eastern Mediterranean and serves to promote incoming, domestic and outgoing tourism, as well as to strengthen cooperation among tourism bodies in Israel and elsewhere in the world. There are exhibitions from nearly 60 countries and 15 tourism ministers are attending.

Tourism Minister Yariv Levin noted that Israel is, "in the midst of a transformation in the aviation field, where, as a result of the support offered by the Tourism Ministry to airline companies who open new routes into Israel, Hainan Airlines and Ryanair began flying into Israel for the first time. IMTM will give additional momentum to this trend and will have a positive influence on increasing incoming tourism to Israel in 2017.”
