The Holy Land Incoming Tour Operators Association was established in the summer of 2005. HLITOA compromises 43 member Tour Operators working in the (Inbound) incoming tourism. The HLITOA members are the main source of tourism in general and pilgrimage in specific, which as well plays as an active private sector pillar for the Palestinian Economy bringing in foreign currency, and directing business to other tourism service providers such as hotels, transport companies, guides, etc; and creating major employment opportunities. There are many travel agents in Palestine who sell airline tickets (Outbound); however, these are not eligible to become members of HLITOA. Only Incoming Tour Operators are eligible for membership.
