International Arrivals Drop 29 Percent in September

Total international arrivals in September 2001 dropped 29 percent when compared to September 2000. Each of the top 10 international markets experienced double-digit drops mainly due to the devastating terrorist attacks on September 11th. The largest declines, however, could be seen in markets with struggling economies, namely Brazil, Germany and Japan, who each experienced more than a 40 percent decline in arrivals to the U.S. during this month. International arrivals in September deepened the year-to-date declines to be 6 percent below the same nine-month period last year.
