Some 90,000 tourists will visit Israel for the Pessah holiday, the Tourism Ministry estimated which would be a 20 percent rise from last year's holiday. Included in the total are 6,000 visitors from France, England, Holland and Scandinavian countries slated to arrive at the airport in Eilat. The upswing will help the hotel industry with hotels around the country expecting occupancy of 80%-90% throughout the holiday season, while quiet bungalows outside the city anticipate 85%-95% occupancy. Additionally, the Israel Nature and Parks Authority expects 450,000 visitors to its sites during the holiday, compared to 400,000 last year, the Tourism Ministry noted.
