857 People Arrive in Hawai‘i on Saturday, Including 255 Visitors
On Saturday, May 9, a total of 857 people arrived in Hawaiʻi including 255 visitors and 334 residents, according to new information compiled by the Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority. While passenger counts continue to rise, there were no trans-Pacific flights to Maui on Saturday. The island continues to see an average of 3 to 4 domestic flights from the mainland per week as a result of reduced flight schedules.
During this same time last year, nearly 30,000 passengers arrived in Hawaiʻi daily, including residents and visitors.
The state’s mandatory 14-day self-quarantine started on March 26th for all passengers arriving in Hawaiʻi from out of state. The quarantine order was expanded on April 1st to include interisland travelers. The table shows the number of people who arrived by air from out-of-state yesterday and does not include interisland travel.

Majority of the people who flew to Hawaiʻi yesterday arrived on Oʻahu.

This data was collected from the HTA survey on the back of the Hawaiʻi Agriculture Declaration Form. People are not mandated by law to fill out the survey so some are left blank.
