    Results out today from Air New Zealand and Auckland Airport are expected to take the pulse of the tourism industry.

    NZIER principal economist, Christina Leung says it seems tourism has already peaked, with fewer business and holiday visitors, especially from China.

    However, she says spending is holding up, particularly in the central North Island and Otago.

    Leung says it highlights the need to move towards high value tourism, rather than just clipping the ticket.
