Romania has attended in the period 7 – 8 February, the International Tourism Exhibition IMTM in Tel Aviv, for promoting tourist destinations like Mamaia, Satul de Vacanta or the Danube Delta. Estimations show that, in 2017, the number of Israeli tourists to arrive on the Romanian coast will exceed 8,000 persons, the representatives of the Litoral – Delta Dunarii Association (ALDD) announced on Tuesday in a press release.
According to the data of Association, in 2016, approximately 7,000 Israeli tourists visited Romanian seaside, especially Mamaia, Navodari and Eforie resorts.
“Following a successful project in 2015, where the Litoral – Delta Dunarii Association stated in an independent manner through an advertising campaign promoting the Mamaia resort by using five private radio broadcasters in Israel, in 2015, 4,500 Israeli tourists reached the seaside, and in 2016 approximately 7,000 Israeli tourists had three charter flights/week and visited the Mamaia, Navodari and Eforie resorts,” stated the head of the Litoral – Delta Dunarii Association, Corina Martin.
She mentioned, also that, for 2017, the number of tourists from Israel could exceed 8,000 due to the additional weekly charter flights.
“We continue the effort of the Litoral – Delta Dunarii Association for increasing the number of Israeli tourists on the Romanian seaside and Danube Delta. As a first, we announce that, in the summer of 2017, we will reach 4 flights/week and estimate 8,000 Israeli tourists this summer at the seaside. We succeeded to extend the number of resorts found in the offer of Israeli tour-operator Meshek Wings, so that, from this summer, we refer to Mamaia, Navodari, Eforie, Neptun and Costinesti. Our success on the Israeli market is exclusively due to the promoting campaign of the Litoral – Delta Dunarii Association, together with Meshek Wings tour-operator, Blue Air airline company, to whom I thank for trust. Likewise, we are confident that the Ministry of Tourism will support our efforts,” Martin underscored.
