Norwegian Air Shuttle: “The demand for travelling with Norwegian and advance bookings have been satisfactory entering the fourth quarter of 2013. Norwegian will continue to take advantage of its increasing competitive power realized through continuous cost efficiency, and from introducing larger aircraft (14 new 737-800Ws will be delivered in 2013) with a lower operating cost. Going forward, the Company expects continued competitive pressure in the European market place.” Source: Company statement, 24-Oct-2013.
