HTA Release July 30, 2020

HONOLULU – The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted visitor arrivals to the Hawaiian Islands in June 2020. Visitor arrivals were down 98.2 percent compared to a year ago, according to preliminary statistics released by the Hawaii Tourism Authority’s (HTA) Tourism Research Division.

All passengers arriving from out-of-state during June were required to abide by a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine. Exemptions include travel for essential reasons like work or healthcare. The interisland quarantine was in effect for the first half of June, ending on June 15. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also continued to enforce its “No Sail Order” on all cruise ships.

In June, a total of 17,068 visitors traveled to Hawaii by air service compared to 951,628 total visitors (by air and cruise ships) during the same period a year ago. Most of the visitors were from U.S. West (10,149, -97.8%) and U.S. East (5,596, -97.7%). A few visitors came from Japan (40, -100.0%) and Canada (57, -99.7%). There were 1,226 visitors from All Other International Markets (-98.9%). Many of these visitors were from Guam, and a small number of visitors were from Oceania, Other Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and the Pacific Islands. Total visitor days dropped 94.6 percent year-over-year.

A total of 110,570 trans-Pacific air seats serviced the Hawaiian Islands in June, down 90.6 percent from a year ago. There were no direct flights or scheduled seats from Japan, Canada, Oceania, and Other Asia, and very few scheduled seats from U.S. East (-94.5%), U.S. West (-88.4%) and Other countries (-54.5%).

Year-to-Date 2020

In the first half of 2020, total visitor arrivals decreased 58.5 percent to 2,156,234 visitors, with significantly fewer arrivals by air service (-58.4% to 2,126,443) and by cruise ships (-61.0% to 29,792) compared to the same period a year ago. Total visitor days dropped 55.2 percent.
