Hawaii Posts Mixed January Numbers

The number of people visiting Hawaii in January dipped compared with the first month of last year, according to data released by the state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism. However, higher average spending by the travelers who did come kept overall spending less than 2 percent lower than the previous period. Among U.S. travelers, arrivals in January were up slightly from states west of the Rockies, which helped offset a decline in travelers from the eastern part of the country. The January performance is in line with industry forecasts of moderate growth this year following several years of steady arrivals and record-setting visitor spending.
