South Pac Tourism Market Review – May 2018

In this week’s exclusive Blue Swan Daily Infographic, we take a closer look at Australia’s booming tourism market by analysing visitor arrivals to the country. For the year ending May-2018, Australia added an additional 6.3% or 214,900 visitors totalling 9.0 million. The top ten countries have remained the same, however moments from India, Malaysia and South Korea played with the order. China (0.7%), India (0.5%) and Hong Kong (0.2%) were the only countries in the top 10 to see positive visitor share growth. Capacity is also expected to grow to meet the rising tourism numbers, Apr-2018 saw a 3.8% growth to 4.4 million seats.
