Israel has a sophisticated tech economy and a highly educated population, its economy has consistently been one of the more robust in the Middle East. However, a growth in income inequalities, alongside the never-ending instability brought about by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, has seen Israels economy and consumer confidence suffer in recent years, with GDP growth falling from 3.2% in 2013 to 2.8% in 2014. Nevertheless, the Israeli economy is accustomed to high risk security issues, with a governmental emphasis on carrying on as normal even when violence escalates. With this, Israeli outbound trips reached 5.1 million 2014 and are expected to increase to 7 million by 2019
In June 2013 Israel signed an Open Skies agreement with the European Union, to be phased in by 2018. The agreement has opened up routes to more carriers, and led to an increased availability of cheaper seats and destinations. The agreement has vastly increased competition in the Israeli aviation market, making tickets cheaper for consumers.
Post-army Israeli backpackers represent a US$150 million annual opportunity for the global tourism industry. As these consumers they often have a year off following military service, they tend to take longer trips and spend three times more than the average international tourist; the United States and India are popular destinations.
