Norwegian airline Widerøe reported a 13.7% year-on-year drop in passenger traffic in April. The carrier put the fall down to demand being dampened by “cost increases as a result of the low krone exchange rate” which in turn “have resulted in increased ticket prices”. The weak currency has worsened surging fuel costs, the airline added, incurring the need to pass some of this rise on to customers. Widerøe said it is to boost co-operation with Norwegian, something the flag carrier announced separately, to include foreign destinations on their ticket and flight sharing system.
