Even though there was  a capacity growth of 33 per cent, the company reduced its unit costs and it is expected that going forward the growth will rise reducing the unit cost.


There was  an improvement of 18 percent as compared to the same quarter last year and the net profit of £121 million was noted in the third quarter.

The load factor was 90.5 per cent as compared to 91.7 percent last year.


Norwegian chief executive Bjørn Kjos was pleased to present a solid result in this quarter with reduced unit cost despite strong growth.



The growth will slow down and  bring benefits to the large investments made over the years profiting the customers, employees and shareholders.



It is expected that tough competition, high oil prices and strong dollar will be affecting the entire aviation industry which will lead to further streamlining their operations and will reduce the costs.
