More than 70,000 Israelis traveled abroad Thursday and Friday for the Succot holiday, the Airports Authority reported. The number of travelers who will fly abroad between Yom Kippur and Succot is expected to reach 150,000. The five most popular destinations are Turkey, Bulgaria, Italy, Greece, and the US. By comparison, vacationers have shunned domestic travel this season, especially in northern Israel. The hotel industry reported that only 70% of hotel rooms are occupied in Haifa, while in Tiberias, just 40% of rooms are booked for Succot.
