Records continue to tumble at Norwegian

Low-cost carrier Norwegian carried approximately 2.5 million passengers in July 2014, an increase of 17 per cent compared to the same month previous year.

This is the highest number of passengers Norwegian has carried in a single month.

The load factor was 88.2 per cent. 

The total passenger traffic increased by 38 per cent, while the capacity increased by 34 per cent during the month.

“We’re very pleased that the passenger growth continues.

“Even with considerable capacity increase, we manage to fill almost nine out of ten seats.

“Particularly in light of the exceptionally warm weather in Scandinavia in July, the traffic figures are solid.

“We’re also pleased that an increasing number of customers outside of Scandinavia choose to fly with Norwegian,” said Norwegian chief executive, Bjørn Kjos.

Norwegian took delivery of one brand new Boeing 737-800 in July.

The company will take delivery of 14 Boeing 737-800 and four 787 Dreamliners during 2014.
