Norwegian continues to experience a considerable passenger growth in November. Close to 1.1 million passengers flew with the airline in November, a 16 percent increase compared to the same month last year. The load factor is better than last year, despite strong increase in capacity.
1,084,782 passengers flew with Norwegian in November, an increase of 151,411 passengers compared to November 2009. The load factor for November was 77 percent, three percentage points higher than the same month previous year.
”We are very satisfied that we manage to increase the load factor, despite larger aircraft and considerable more departures than the same month previous years,” said CEO Bjørn Kjos of Norwegian.
In November, Norwegian’s regularity was 99 percent and the Groups’ total punctuality was 80.5 percent. The overall punctuality was strongly affected by ground handling strike at Las Palmas airport.
