New Zealand: Record Year for Auckland

In partnership with:

Auckland welcomed more than two million international arrivals in a 12 month period for the first time ever in 2014.

The latest results from Statistics New Zealand show international arrivals to Auckland for the year ending December 2014 were 2,029,568, an increase of 5 per cent on the previous year.

Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) chief executive Brett O’Riley says this is an excellent milestone for Auckland.

“This record-breaking result supports Auckland’s positioning as a great destination with unique attractions and experiences that have helped earn our city international recognition as a leading tourism destination,” he said.

The annual growth was largely attributed to a 14 per cent increase in arrivals from China, an 11.6 per cent increase from Germany, and a 10.4 per cent increase from the US.

Auckland has also seen consistent accommodation occupancy rates over the past five years, with international guest nights rising 4.5 per cent to just over three million.
