HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Since June began, arrivals by air are up 16% to Maui and 21% to the Big Island, in line with previous months. But Kauai arrivals, up more than 40% in April AND May, are down 4% so far this month. Let's take an even closer look.
Friday 2,280 +11.3% (2,049)
Saturday 1,860 -34.5% (2,839)
Sunday 2,220 -4.7% (2,328)
Monday 2,078 +0.2% (2,073)
Clear through May, Kauai arrivals continued to beat last year by double-digit percentages. Not a single day was down until Saturday, June 2nd. By then the rains had stopped and repairs were well underway. There could be a lesson in this for the Big Island.
