The increase of passengers is 13 percent compared to the same month last year. The total traffic growth (RPK) increased by 17 percent this month, driven by 15 percent capacity growth and a two percentage point higher load factor.

One of the world’s youngest fleets
Norwegian’s fleet renewal program continues with full force in 2016 with the delivery of 21 brand new aircraft. The company took delivery two brand new Boeing 737-800 in June. With an average age of only 3.6 years, Norwegian’s fleet is one of the world’s “greenest” and most modern.

 

Norwegian operated 99.2 percent of the scheduled flights in June, whereof 69.8 percent departed on time. Several factors affected Norwegian’s on-time performance in June, including weather-related challenges and several strikes. The strike among French air traffic controllers severely affected the traffic in Europe, while a fuel strike in Norway affected our operation in Scandinavia.
