Hawaii’s visitor industry got a boost in March with more visitors arriving-up 9.3% statewide-over last March and spending more as well, the Hawaii Tourism Authority reported Friday. Total expenditures by visitors who came by air in March 2010 rose 12.7% from the same month last year to $874.2 million, boosted by increased arrivals and higher daily visitor spending, according to the preliminary statistics. For the first quarter of 2010, total spending by air visitors grew by $130.1 million to $2.7 billion, or 5% higher compared to year-to-date 2009.
