Visitor arrivals rise 3.5 percent first three weeks in November
Advertiser StaffPassenger arrivals, a rough measure of tourism, are running 3.5 percent higher through Nov. 21 compared to the same period a year earlier, according to state data.
The increase is being fueled by higher passenger counts on flights from the Mainland and improved arrivals on international flights.
There were 478,248 arrivals in the first 21 days of November this year.
Last year there were 462,044.
