Visitor arrivals and spending rose statewide in January for the second month in a row, led by gains on the Big Island, Maui and Kaua'i, the Hawai'i Tourism Authority reported yesterday.


It was the first time since the downturn began nearly two years ago that visitor spending posted back-to-back monthly gains.


The state welcomed 532,737 visitors in January, up 2 percent from the same month a year earlier, according to the report. Those arriving by air spent $983.3 million, 3.5 percent more than they did the previous January.
