Published on : Friday, May 31, 2019

The Israel Ministry of Tourism has appointed Sammy Yahia as Director of Tourism for India and Philippines, effective June 3, 2019.




Sammy was the Director of Marketing & Communications for Israel Ministry of Tourism from 2012 to May 2019. During his tenure there, he was awarded ‘Employee of the Year – Civil Service Commission’ and received a certificate of appreciation from the Minister of Tourism and the Director General for his valuable contributions.




As per Yahia, the arrivals from India have amassed expectations in the last few years to present some record-breaking numbers. While keeping the current momentum going, the goal is to place India as one of the top global source markets for Israel. Besides the metropolitan cities, continuing to capture Tier II cities would be the strategy to lure travellers to consider Israel for a leisure holiday offering dynamic experiences catering to varied interests.




Their office will aggressively work towards increasing connectivity between India and Israel by introducing new airlines to service the route.





Visitor arrivals from India have grown from 35,000 in 2014 to almost 71,000 in 2018. Israel hopes to surpass its achievements of last year –21 per cent increase in Indian tourist arrivals, which elevated India to the 12th position among top source markets for Israel worldwide.
