Norwegian sees growth continue in early 2015

Low-cost carrier Norwegian continues to grow in all markets, according to the latest statistics from the airline.

Norwegian carried more than 1.6 million passengers in January 2015, an increase of five per cent compared to January last year.

The load factor was 80 per cent in January, up 5.2 percentage points.

In January, 1,609,057 passengers flew with Norwegian.

The total passenger traffic increased by 21 per cent and the total capacity increased by 13 per cent during the month.


“I’m very pleased that we have a higher load factor in a low season month like January.

“The increase in traffic growth is mainly due to a stronger focus on the European market, along with a considerable growth in our long-haul operation,” said Norwegian chief executive Bjørn Kjos.

Norwegian continues to renew its fleet.

A total of ten new Boeing 737-800s and one 787 Dreamliner aircraft will be delivered during 2015.

Last year, Norwegian took delivery of 14 brand new Boeing 737-800 and four 787 Dreamliners.
