Last month’s traffic figures show a stable and positive development for Norwegian. Future bookings are good and the growth on long-haul routes – particularly out of London Gatwick – continues.
Norwegian carried 2,385,906 passengers in October, an increase of six percent compared to the same month previous year. The total passenger traffic (RPK) increased by ten percent and the capacity increased by two percent. The load factor increased by 6.2 percentage points to 87.8 percent. The load factor on the long-haul routes was 96 percent.
“This month is characterized by stable growth in the Scandinavian market, not least in Norway, where many have predicted a decline in passenger demand. When corporations need to save cost on employee travel, they look for high quality flights at a lower fare,” said CEO Bjørn Kjos.
Norwegian operated 99.7 percent of its scheduled flights in October, whereof 85.3 percent departed on time.
