Hawaii Tourism Industry Sees a Surge in Visitors as Daily Passenger Count Reaches 2019 Levels

As the tourism industry in Hawaii continues to recover from the pandemic, the state is seeing a surge in visitors this spring break that is reminiscent of the pre-pandemic levels of 2019.

According to the state’s daily passenger count, the number of arrivals is similar to 2019, with 30,732 people landing in Hawaii on Wednesday alone, compared to 30,692 in 2019.

While visitors from Japan remain at less than half of pre-pandemic levels, domestic travelers and other markets are making up for it.

The Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort has the staff they need for their current level of occupancy, ranging in the 80 percentile, but some hotels and restaurants are struggling due to the labor crisis throughout the industry.

Despite longer waits at some spots, tourists on vacation are still enjoying the hospitality of Hawaii and some are even planning to return.

With the number of travelers reaching pre-pandemic levels, visitors say they are noticing the crowds, but also appreciate the aloha spirit of the locals.

The return of visitors to pre-pandemic levels is good news for the state’s tourism industry, which was hit hard by the pandemic.

Hawaii is eager to welcome back tourists and hopes to continue seeing growth in the coming months.
