Norwegian reports international growth and boost with more than 3.1 million passengers carried in a single month.
The carrier served a total of 3,148,511 passengers in October, which is a 14% increase compared to the same month’s figures from last year or 381,768 more travelers. The other indicators also remained stable during the month. The load factor was 87.4%, the total traffic growth increased by 29%, while the capacity growth was 31% higher.
Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos commented that the strongest growth was in the intercontinental routes, where the number of passengers has increased by 56%. He also added that Norwegian needs to work on global expansion and positioning itself in the market, where the competition is still strong.
Norwegian also works on a plan of fleet renewal and took delivery of one Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. The average age of the carrier’s aircraft is 3.6 years, which makes its fleet one of the world’s youngest and most modern.
