Eilat makes the number 6 slot in the coveted New York Times list of “52 Places to Go in 2019”

Eilat makes the number 6 slot in the coveted New York Times list of  “52 Places to Go in 2019”. The Red Sea resort at Israel’s southernmost tip and the easily accessible Negev desert are becoming ever more popular, thanks to the arrival of tens of thousands of tourists on nearly 60 weekly flights during the winter season, mainly from Europe, Scandinavia and Russia. The international low-cost and scheduled flights currently land in Ovdah airport, but, from March, they are expected to land in the new Ramon International airport at Timna.

The entry for Eilat reads:
“Beneath the prismatic waters of this Red Sea resort on Israel’s southern tip lies a coral reef with hundreds of varieties of neon fish, sharks and stingrays. To get there, visitors used to have to catch a charter flight from Tel Aviv or brave the dusty drive through the 5,000-square-mile Negev Desert. But with the opening early this year of Ramon Airport, set in the dramatic Timna Valley and capable of handling four million international transit passengers a year, the world will finally get a direct route – with nonstops from Munich and Frankfurt on Lufthansa, and budget carriers flying in from Prague, London and across Europe. New hotels, including the luxurious Six Senses Shaharut, opening just in time for Israel’s turn at hosting the Eurovision 2019 song contest, are ready for the crowds”.
