Norwegian reports rise in traffic figures and high punctuality

Norwegian reports a traffic growth of 21 percent in November. The company carried more than 1.7 million passengers this month. The load factor was 79 percent, up 2.8 percentage points from the same month previous year.

Norwegian carried 1,766,134 passengers in November, an increase of five percent compared to the same month previous year. The total passenger traffic (RPK) increased by 21 percent, while the capacity (ASK) increased by 16 percent this month. The load factor was 79 percent, up 2.8 percentage points.

“I am pleased that an increasing number of passengers from our extensive route network choose to fly with Norwegian. The load factor was high, which shows that even with a high capacity growth, we continue to fill the seats,” said Norwegians CEO Bjørn Kjos.

Norwegian operated 99.9 percent of its scheduled flights in November, whereof 89.1 percent departed on time.

Norwegian took delivery of one brand new Boeing 737-800 aircraft in November. The company will introduce a total of 14 Boeing 737-800s to its fleet in 2014. The capacity growth in 2014 is largely related to the growth in Norwegian’s long-haul fleet. From October this year, Norwegian has returned several older, leased aircraft. Norwegian has also taken delivery of four Boeing 787 Dreamliners this year.
