Nanaimo Tourism Bulletins

Nanaimo Tourism Bulletins

After a slow first quarter for Nanaimo’s accommodation sector, both April and year-to-date accommodation indicators have improved relative to the same periods last year. The April occupancy rate was up by almost 2% to just over 74% for the month. The ongoing strong performance of the Nanaimo Airport (up 10.6% YTD) continues to confirm the need for and value of current airport expansion activities.

Transportation indicators have been strong in the first quarter with both BC Ferries and the Nanaimo Airport experiencing strong year-over-year and year-to-date growth. However, occupancy was down by 8% compared to March of last year and, on a year-to-date basis, is down by just over 4%. We anticipate that occupancy will improve as we get further into spring. We also want to take this opportunity to congratulate the Snuneymuxw First Nation on their recently announced innovative tourism development plans for Newcastle Island!

While transportation statistics are mostly up from 2017, hotel occupancy is down 7.6 % from February 2017, and 3.59% YTD. Weather conditions have been poor, affecting close-in visitation on weekends. Nanaimo is more than ready for Spring to arrive!
