The Israel Tourism & Travel Agents Association has appealed to the Histadrut Labor Federation not to include Ben-Gurion Airport in a general strike planned for Wednesday. ITTAA official Yossi Fatael told Israel Radio on Tuesday that an airport strike in peak tourism season would "damage Israel's image worse than [last summer's war] did." According to Fatael, travel agents abroad have warned that an airport strike, that would leave thousands stranded, would lay to waste recent efforts to revive Israel's popularity as a tourist destination.
