NAS issues Feb traffic results

Norwegian (NAS) continued its passenger growth in February. The company carried 1,254,643 passengers, an increase of 9% compared to February last year.
Due to last year’s leap year, this February had one less travel day. The same number of travel days this year would have resulted in an even higher passenger growth.
The total passenger traffic (RPK) increased by 19% and the total capacity (ASK) increased by 19% this month. The unit revenue figures were also positive, with a RASK increase of 2%. The load factor was 78% in February, the same as February last year.
“I’m very pleased with the traffic growth this month. The traffic figures show that our passengers appreciate a quality product at a low price, and we have a clear goal that all our passengers will get an even better experience with our new aircraft,” Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos said.
In February, Norwegian took delivery of three brand new Boeing 737-800 aircraft. All in all, 14 new aircraft will be added to the fleet this year. Norwegian took delivery of aircraft number six on March 6 straight from the Boeing factory in Seattle. With an average age of 4.6 years, Norwegian’s fleet is one of Europe’s newest and most environmentally friendly.
Norwegian’s regularity was 99.9% in February, whereof 82.1% departed on time. Airlines that choose to cancel a number of flights have an artificially high on-time performance because the flight is not included in the on-time performance statistics.
