Ayit Aviation and Tourism (Hebrew: עיט שירותי תעופה ותיירות‎‎) is an Israeli domestic airline established in 2008. Ayit flies between Sde Dov Airport, near Tel Aviv, and Ben Ya'akov Airport near Rosh Pinna.

As part of its agreement to operate the route, the airline agreed that IDF personnel would be allowed to fly from Tel Aviv to Rosh Pinna for free. 12,000 tickets were given to the Defense Ministry as a result.[1]
