Steady as she goes

August 24, 2014

The number of tourists in 2014 has been steady in most jurisdictions.


The peak in cruise ship passengers to Alaska reached a record peak of cruise visitors in 2008, when 1,032,074. This year’s expected 970,000 total is still about 6% shy of the record, but better than 2010-12.

Air traffic is bringing more people to the north in all jurisdictions. Iqaluit’s new airport should help stimulate air traffic when it opens in late 2017.
