India Seeks to Double Tourism From Israel
India’s tourism minister, Subodh Kant Sahai, recently came to Israel for the first visit by an official in that position in 10 years.
Sahai, who wants to increase Israeli tourism in India, met with Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz. The two agreed to promote a new bilateral aviation agreement that will allow charter flights between the two countries. This should double the flights operating between India and Israel, Haaretz reported.
Fifty-thousad Israeli tourists visited India last year. “Our goal is 100,000 tourists a year from Israel,” Sahai said.
