George D. Szigeti, president and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA), issued the following statement commenting on Hawaii’s visitor statistics for June 2016.

“Hawaii’s tourism industry achieved record totals for the first two quarters, attracting more visitors at 4.4 million, and generating more spending at $7.7 billion, than any previous year. Importantly, these results also produced a record $820.7 million in state tax revenue for the first two quarters, revenue that strengthens our State’s ability to provide programs and services benefiting residents statewide.

“We are especially heartened by these results through the first half of the year, as our two largest tourism markets, U.S. West and U.S. East, carried the bulk of Hawaii’s success, bolstered by the new international markets that HTA has been working hard to develop. Hawaii also had strong results for the month of June, infusing us with confidence that the peak summer travel season will prove to be very fruitful.

“Hawaii continues to do well as a global travel destination and it’s primarily due to the world’s admiration for our beloved Hawaiian culture and the aloha spirit embracing all who come to these islands. Mahalo to all of our industry stakeholders for doing their part every day to make the Hawaiian Islands such a sensational travel experience.”
