George D. Szigeti, president and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA), issued the following statement commenting on Hawaii’s visitor statistics results for February 2018.

“February was an outstanding month for Hawaii’s tourism industry that reflected the combined impact of strong travel demand and increased air access from our primary and secondary markets. The $1.52 billion in visitor spending that poured into the State’s economy also generated $375 million in state tax revenue, which puts Hawaii more than $29 million ahead of last year’s pace through two months.
“We saw significant growth in visitor spending from our major markets of the U.S. mainland, Japan and Canada, along with a strong resurgence from the other international markets where we promote travel to the Hawaiian Islands on a continuing basis.
“All four island counties benefited from this broad foundation of visitor travel from global markets, but it was especially encouraging to see visitor spending on Oahu increase by 19.6 percent to $674 million for the month. That was, by far, the largest monthly increase year-over-year for Oahu in several years.
“Maintaining the strength of Hawaii’s tourism industry is a team effort that requires the collaboration of everyone with a stake in its future. We appreciate the continued support of our industry partners and applaud the hardworking tourism professionals who contribute every day to the industry’s success through their dedication to service, hospitality and sharing the aloha spirit with our visitors.”
