Pawtucket, RI (October 10, 2023) – Collette announces the cancellation of all departures to Israel through the remainder of the calendar year. Future departures for January 1, 2024 and on will be evaluated well in advance of travel.

Over the weekend, Collette was able to ensure that nearly 100 travelers who were on tour in the region were able to fly home safely. The company made the early decision to move groups North to Jordan so they could fly out of the Amman airport, rather than waiting for flights out of Tel Aviv.

“We are deeply saddened by the events that transpired in Israel over the weekend, and we hope that the Israeli people will be able to quickly bring safety, security and stability back to the region,” said Jeff Roy, Executive Vice President at Collette. “As a result of these events, we will cancel all departures to Israel through December 31, 2023. For departures January 1, 2024 and forward, we will closely monitor the developments in Israel and make operating decisions for these tours at least 60-days in advance of travel.”
