05-Oct-2017 Norwegian once again carried more than three million passengers in a single month. More than 3.1 million passengers travelled with the company in September, an increase of 14 percent compared to the same month previous year. The growth is strongest on Norwegian’s intercontinental routes and the load factor has increased to 90 percent. 

A total of 3,165,031 passengers chose to fly with Norwegian in September. This is 386,225 more passengers than the same period last year (14 percent). The total traffic growth (RPK) increased by 29 percent, while the capacity growth (ASK) increased by 28 percent this month. The load factor in September was up 0.3 percentage points to 90 percent.

“We’re very pleased to see that more passengers are choosing Norwegian when they travel, not least business travellers.The demand is good and stable in Scandinavia, and the growth is highest on our intercontinental routes. Global expansion is important to position ourselves in a market with such strong competition, but also for creating economic value in the markets we operate,” said CEO of Norwegian Bjørn Kjos.

Norwegian operated 99.6 percent of the scheduled flights in September, whereof 77.9 percent departed on time.

Norwegian’s fleet renewal program continued this month with the delivery of one Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and one Boeing 737-800. With an average age of only 3.6 years, Norwegian’s fleet is one of the world’s “greenest” and most modern.

The company’s new routes from London to Singapore, Denver and Seattle were launched this month. As did Norwegian’s cooperation with Europe’s second largest low-cost airline, easyJet, which gives passengers the opportunity to book an easyJet short-haul flight and self-connect to a Norwegian long-haul flight in one simple transaction from London Gatwick

Vi oplever stabil, god efterspørgsel i Skandinavien, men væksten er størst på selskabets interkontinentale ruter.
