Posted October 05, 2018 06:32:56 The world’s leading travel agency has been awarded the right to operate in the Palestinian territories after years of lobbying by the Israeli government.
The Jerusalem-based Avi Tel Aviv International, which is a subsidiary of the Israeli-American firm Aviad, has won approval from the Israeli Cabinet to expand its operations in the West Bank and Gaza.
“We are pleased to be a part of this new partnership,” said AviTel Aviv’s chief executive, Avi Issacharoff.
“Aviad is an industry leader and an international agency with a global network, which makes us an ideal partner to expand our operations in Palestine.”
Since 1967, Israel has occupied the West bank and Gaza Strip and the Palestinians have been in the midst of a protracted conflict with Israel.
AviAd has expanded into over 80 countries and has been involved in over 10 million transactions worldwide.
Its operations in Egypt have been largely restricted to the Sinai Peninsula and Gaza City.
The agency also has branches in Israel and the United States.
Avid Israel, Avid Canada, Aviatie Israel and Avid International have all won approval to expand their operations in Israel.
“With the approval of the government, we are moving forward with our expansion plans,” said Mr Issachaloff.
In an emailed statement to The Jerusalem Times, AviaNet said the expansion of its operations “will strengthen our presence in the region”.
AviAmt and AviAD have also been awarded contracts to provide flights to Israel for Israeli diplomats and others. “
This expansion is in line with the long-term goals of the Quartet – the United Nations, the European Union, the United Kingdom and Israel.”
