Norwegian reports 15% passenger increase in February

In February, Norwegian carried 1,871,396 passengers, an increase of 15 per cent compared to the same month previous year. The total passenger traffic (RPK) increased by 20 per cent and the total capacity (ASK) increased by 19 per cent.

CEO Bjørn Kjos said: “We are very pleased that we have attracted more new business and leisure travelers this month. The growth is primarily due to international expansion, particularly our intercontinental operation with long-haul flights from London Gatwick continuing to perform well.”

The first of 30 new and bigger Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners entered Norwegian’s fleet in February – the first of four 787-9 Dreamliners Norwegian will take delivery of in 2016.

A brand new Boeing 737-800 also entered the fleet in February, the second of 17 to be delivered this year. With an average age of 3.6 years, Norwegian’s fleet is one of Europe’s newest and most environmentally friendly.

Norwegian operated 99.7 per cent of its scheduled flights in February, whereof 79.5 per cent departed on time.
