EU–Israel aviation agreement: Israel joins Europe in aviation

Brussels, 22 March 2012 -

Israel and the European Union have finalized negotiations on a comprehensive aviation agreement during a final round of negotiating in Tel Aviv on 22 March 2012.

The agreement will gradually open up and integrate the respective markets, strengthen cooperation and offer new opportunities for industry, including airlines, and consumers.

Following eight rounds of negotiations since December 2008, the two sides have agreed to develop a common aviation area between Israel and the EU based on common rules. It is expected that the agreement will offer more travel opportunities, more direct connections and economic benefits for both sides.

"The comprehensive aviation agreement reached in Tel Aviv today is very important for further strengthening the overall economic, trade and tourism relations between Israel and the EU. Israel is a key partner for the EU and the agreement will do much to develop the aviation links between the two partners and establish a high level of regulatory convergence", said Vice-President Siim Kallas, EU Commissioner for transport, welcoming the agreement.

296,000 visitors arrived in Israel in July 2013, 8% more than July 2012.
2 million visitors have arrived since the beginning of the year – 1.7 million of whom are tourists;
7% more than the same period last year.
