North American Visitors to the Islands of Tahiti Accounted 35.8 Percent of Worldwide Arrivals For First Nine Months of 2012
December 4 2012

Tahiti Tourisme announces that North American arrivals for September 2012 to the Islands of Tahiti are up 3.9 percent over September 2011. North Americans accounted for 35.8 percent of all Tahiti visitors for the first nine months of the year.

 

The United States delivered 38,778 visitors, Canada delivered 5,245 visitors and Mexico delivered 737 visitors, for a total of 44,760 visitors and from January to September 2012. Cruise passenger arrivals are up 10 percent or September 2012 as compared to September 2011.

Land arrivals excluding VFR (family & friends visiting the islands) for the same month were 3,506 passengers total, a 2.6 percent increase over September 2011. Total North American “paid room nights” for September 2012 increased to 33,072, a 2.7 percent increase over September 2011.

Easier to travel to than most imagine, Tahiti’s Faa’a International Airport is only an eight-hour flight from Los Angeles with daily nonstop flights. Tahiti is halfway between Los Angeles and Sydney, Australia, in the same time zone as Hawaii and on the same side of the International Date Line as North America.
