Tourism (Otherwise) Unaffected
Aside from the closure of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, most of the state of Hawaii is unaffected by Kilauea’s eruption. Kilauea is relatively isolated on a relatively remote section of the Big Island (which is also named Hawai’i).
“[The volcanic activity] is limited to a remote region on the slopes of Kilauea volcano,” Hawaii Gov. David Ige said Saturday in a press release. “Everywhere else in the Hawaiian Islands is not affected.”
As of Thursday, flights into Hawaii’s airports were also unaffected by Kilauea’s eruption. “There is absolutely no reason at this time to change or alter their leisure or business plans,” Ross Birch, the executive director of the Island of Hawai‘i Visitors Bureau, said Tuesday in a press release from the Hawaii Tourism Authority.
