Holiday arrivals in New Zealand have increased by a whopping 16.1% for the financial year ending June with two successful off-peak seasons (spring and autumn) flanking the best summer ever for arrivals. Tourism New Zealand welcomes today’s latest arrivals data for June and reflects on a solid year of growth as it moves into a new financial year.

Tourism New Zealand’s General Manager Corporate Affairs Deborah Gray said, “We’re pleased to see that the result of our marketing efforts to attract more visitors in the shoulder seasons has continued into the first month of winter with June holiday arrivals up 20.5% over the same month last year. We welcomed 15,000 additional holiday visitors to the country in June which, at a current average spend of $3,500 per visitor equates to an incremental $53 million for the New Zealand economy in June.”

“If we zoom in a little closer we’ve got an incremental 2,000 holiday visitors for the month of June this year in each of our key markets of Australia (2,656), China (2,128) and USA (2,160).”

“We have also seen growth of 22% and 15% in holiday arrivals from our target emerging markets of India and Indonesia respectively for the year ending June 2016.
