APRIL 2005 YTD INTERNATIONAL VISITATION LEVELS UP EIGHT PERCENT
The U.S. Department of Commerce released figures today that show over 12 million international visitors traveled to the United States during the first four months of 2005, an increase of eight percent over the same period in 2004. Arrivals were down by four percent in April 2005 compared to last year due to the impact of Easter traffic in April 2004. The impact was most significant in the Mexican market.
