May 29, 2017 Destination Hawaii No Comments Email Email

George D. Szigeti, president and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA), issued the following statement commenting on Hawaii’s visitor statistics in April 2017. “April was a better month than expected, with the Easter holiday and Golden Week in Japan contributing to increased travel demand. Visitor spending statewide grew 9 percent over last year, fueled by the strong performance of Hawaii’s core markets, U.S. West, U.S. East, Japan and Canada. The economies of Hawaii’s four major islands felt the positive impact of these results, highlighted by Maui, Kauai and the island of Hawaii all reporting double-digit growth in visitor spending.

“The State’s tax revenue base continues to benefit from the success of Hawaii’s tourism industry. Through the first four months, $657.2 million in tax revenue has been produced for the State of Hawaii, which is an increase of $60.2 million, or 10.1 percent, over last year. These are funds that are helping to make lives better for families and communities statewide.

“The credit for Hawaii’s tourism success goes to the industry partners and dedicated employees who engage our visitors daily. Travelers come from around the world to enjoy the Hawaii experience, but most of all it is the warmth of aloha and friendliness of our people that stands out over everything else. Mahalo to our industry partners, stakeholders and tourism employees for helping to make the Hawaiian Islands such an appealing travel destination.”
