Hawaii tourismIn 2016, Hawaii’s tourism industry set new records, adding $15.6 billion into the economy and $1.82 billion into the State’s tax coffers. This has also given rise to the number of jobs compared to the year before. Visitor arrivals were up 3.9% in 2016 and visitor spending increased 8.4% to $4.5 billion. To quote HTA president George Szigeti, “Mahalo to all of tourism’s stakeholders and industry partners throughout the State for contributing to the success of Hawaii’s most important industry.”

The HTA set new records in total visitor spending and visitor arrivals in 2016. A total of 8,941,394 visitors came to Hawaii last year, representing a 3% increase compared to 2015.


Driven by growth from the U.S. West, the U.S. East and Korea, air arrivals rose 3.1% to 8,832,598 visitors in 2016. However, cruise ship visitors decreased by 6.6% in 2016. More visitors came for honeymoon. The number of visitors who came for meetings, conventions and incentives dropped slightly in 2016.
