MOSCOW, August 15 (Itar-Tass) - Tours to Israel are sold as usual despite the instable situation, the Russian Union of Travel Industry (RUTI) reported on Wednesday, August 14.
“The negative events of last week have no impact on booking tours to Israel,” the report says.
“Russians do not react to isolated strikes on the Israeli territory, moreover the resort areas of Eilat are secure.” Tour operators say tourists have not contacted the companies in this regard. One of the tour operators explained, “The summer is not a high season that is why sales are not big.”
Last week the airport of Eilat was closed due to security threat.
Overnight August 13 Israel’s air defense intercepted a missile, which had been delivered on Eilat, the Israeli army’s press service told Itar-Tass.
The Israeli Defense Ministry reported that foreign tourists could continue visiting the resort city of Eilat on the coast of the Red Sea. Thousands of tourists from all round the world, including from Russia, vacation in Eilat.
According to Rosturism, in the first quarter of this year over 50,000 Russian tourists have visited Israel.
