A record year for the Cook Islands in tourism
Monday 24 Jul 2017
2016 was a huge year for the Cook Islands with a growth of over 17% in visitor arrivals. More than 146,000 travellers arrived over the year, with New Zealand still the country’s leading market.
“This is a milestone that is accredited back to all the people of the Cook Islands and their efforts in embracing its key economic driver,” said Cook Islands Tourism Corporation chief executive officer Halatoa Fua The increase is attributed to a number of factors, mainly increased air capacity as well as competitive fares and a refreshed brand in the country’s international markets under the tagline “Love a little paradise.”
