Norwegian Air Shuttle: “In May the yield is estimated at NOK0.51, down 14% compared to May 2009. The development partially reflects a significantly adjusted route portfolio and the introduction of 12 new Boeing 737-800 aircraft with higher capacity and lower unit cost since May last year,” Company statement.
