Norwegian Air Shuttle: "The increase in passenger traffic, production and passengers is primarily driven by the establishment of new European short-haul bases and long-haul operations to North America and Southeast Asia. The new long and short-haul routes contributed positively to the load factor. The traffic figures are influenced by the better than usual weather in Northern Europe which affected late bookings."
