NEW - Paris Region Mission - Israel and Turkey markets

The Paris Region Touriste Board is organising a mission to promote Paris and its region in two Middle Eastern markets, Israel and Turkey, combining actions dedicated to the destination and French workshops organised by Atout France.



The situation in Israel

Despite the recent conflict it was decided to maintain this operation with the approval of the French authorities and Atout France.

The reopening of Israel to tourism is a positive signal for the tourism industry. Since March 2021, France, for its part, no longer requires a compelling reason for travel from Israel and since 9 June, the last restrictions have been lifted, as France has classified the country as green. The country's exit from the health crisis is real, linked to a strong and rapid vaccination campaign of the population.

In the Middle East markets, the Israeli clientele, which in 2019 represented more than 100,000 stays in Paris Region, is a clientele to be favoured.

The situation in Turkey

With 84.5 million inhabitants and a young population, the Turkish clientele, loyal to the destination, is to be favoured. Travel intentions, for leisure and business tourism, are strong in Istanbul, the main basin.

Despite a significant health crisis, Turkey has managed its economy well and is one of the few G20 countries to record positive growth in 2020.

The Turkish clientele, which recorded 125,000 stays in Paris and its region, largely favours reservations through travel agencies. They are ready to travel and present a real opportunity when the borders are opened.
