Hawaii witnesses big boost in visitor arrivals and spending in January

Published on : Saturday, February 29, 2020

Hawaii witnessed a big boost in visitor arrivals and spending in January, as per latest figures.

 

However, the surges are likely to be short-lived with fears concerning global outbreak of corona virus on the increase.

 

The Hawaii Tourism Authority reported a 5% increase in visitor arrivals to Hawaii in January, compared to the same month last year.

 

The increase was mainly due to visitors from the mainland and Japan.

 

Spending also went up by 5%, with tourists spending more than $1.7 billion on lodging, airfare, car rentals and other expenses.

 

Hoteliers and others are of the opinion that they’re bracing for a decline in visitor arrivals and spending as the number of corona virus cases continue to rise in countries globally.
