Hawaii visitor spending, arrivals down for October…

Posted on 28 November 2009

Hawaii tourism dipped in October for both arrivals and visitor spending, although the declines were far smaller than earlier drops, according to preliminary statistics released Tuesday by the Hawaii Tourism Authority. The number of visitors traveling to the state decreased 1.7% from the same month last year to 505,676 visitors. Arrivals by air were relatively unchanged, down 0.3% but arrivals by ship-a far smaller number-declined 39.7% from last October because of fewer cruise ships to the islands during the month. The result was a 3.3% decrease in total visitor days compared with last October. The average length of stay by all visitors was 8.95 days, compared with 9.10 days in October 2008.
