Cyprus, Israel to promote joint tourism packages in US, Russia and Germany

Cyprus and Israel have reached an agreement to promote joint packages for tourists as of 2020, initially from the US, Russia and Germany.

The agreement was reached between a delegation  from Cyprus’ Deputy Ministry of Tourism headed by Deputy Minister Savvas Perdios and an Israeli delegation headed by Israel’s Tourism Ministry Director-General Amir Halevi during a meeting in Nicosia on Friday.

During the meeting the two sides reconfirmed that gastronomy was “very important” for both countries and would be the pillar of a joint thematic route, with a single excursion package that will attract visitors to both Israel and Cyprus, the  deputy ministry of tourism adds.

Moreover, the two delegations discussed a second joint package that would give visitors the ability to visit Cyprus for golf tourism and Israel for health and wellness tourism, it says.

They also decided to participate in cruise tourism exhibitions with joint pavilions.
