Number of visitors to Hawaii grows 4.3 percent year-on-year in October

HONOLULU -- The Hawaii Tourism Authority says the number of travelers to the islands increased 4.3 percent in October compared to the same month last year, setting a record for the month.

The agency said Wednesday more than 700,000 people visited Hawaii in October.

Spending grew 6.8 percent to US$1.2 billion.

Hawaii's tourism industry has benefited from a growth in flights and airlines' use of larger planes on routes to the islands.

The agency says visitors from the U.S. mainland and Japan increased. Travelers from Canada declined.

Tourism authority CEO George Szigeti says the state is on track to set records for visitor arrivals and spending this year.

He says Maui, Kauai and the Big Island recorded double-digit increases in visitor spending for the past two months.
