Pacific tourism sees increase in visitor arrivals
The Pacific region has recorded a 7% increase in the number of visitor arrivals according to the first quarter tourism review for 2015.
Fiji (143,447), Palau (48,647) and Papua New Guinea (42,678) recorded the highest visitor arrivals for this quarter, while the Cook Islands, French Polynesia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu experienced a drop in their visitor arrivals, according to figures from a review implemented by the South Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO).
According to the SPTO, Australian tourists continue to dominate the visitor arrivals into the South Pacific.
A total of 115,581 Australian tourists visited the region during the review with Fiji, dominating the market share at 58.4% with 67,552 visitors and Papua New Guinea at 17.4% with 20,110 visitors.
Commenting on the figures, SPTO Chief Executive Ilisoni Vuidreketi explained “overall, the visitor arrivals into the South Pacific remained on a steady growth particularly from the major source markets of Australia and New Zealand and this is very encouraging.”
