unnamed (4)Norwegian once again carried more than three million passengers in a single month. More than 3.1 million passengers traveled with the company in October, an increase of 14 percent compared to the same month previous year. The strongest growth was on Norwegian’s intercontinental routes, which have increased the number of passengers by 56 percent.

 

A total of 3,148,511 passengers chose to fly with Norwegian in October. This was 381,768 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 31 percent this month. The load factor in October was 87.4 percent.

 

“We’re very pleased to see that more passengers are choosing Norwegian for their travels. The growth is highest on our intercontinental routes and the overall demand is satisfactory and stable. The competition is still strong, so global expansion is important to position ourselves in the market,” said CEO of Norwegian, Bjørn Kjos.

 

Norwegian operated 99.4 percent of the scheduled flights in October, whereof 78.3 percent departed on time.

 

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