Before the start of summer, the University of Hawaii Economic Research Organization predicted that Kauai would see the biggest year-over-year change in visitor arrivals with an 8.9 percent increase. From January through March of this year, Kauai was already up at 6.8 percent. For those of us who have been to the beautiful garden island of Kauai, it comes to no surprise that once discovered, you will fall in love. With that being said, the increase in direct flights to Lihue has made it more convenient for the island to be discovered and is a factor contributing to the boost in the number of visitors. “Kauai has the largest number of direct flights in the history of tourism arrivals, which helps in longer stays, Kauai-only stays and increased expenditures,” said Sue Kanoho, executive director of the Kauai Visitors Bureau. Also, Randy Francisco, President and CEO of the Kauai Chamber of Commerce believes the biggest reason for the economic boom underway is that Asian economies are growing, and the U.S. West Coast economy is gaining steam, too, sending more flights to Kauai.
