Norwegian Air Shuttle: “The demand for travelling with Norwegian and advanced bookings has been satisfactory entering the fourth quarter of 2010. Assuming a fuel price of USD 737 pr ton and USD/NOK 5,87 for the remainder of the year (excluding hedged volumes) and with the current route portfolio, the company is targeting a unit cost (CASK) of NOK 0.46 (including current hedges) for 2010, down 2% since the Q2 2010 guiding. Assuming a fuel price of USD 850 pr ton and USD/NOK 6.00 for the year 2011 (excluding hedged volumes) and with the current route portfolio, the company is targeting a unit cost (CASK) in the area of NOK 0.46 – 0.47 for 2011 compared to last years guiding for 2010 of 0.49 – 0.50 with the same assumptions,” Bjørn Kjos, CEO.
