NORWAY: Norwegian Passengers Increase Siginificantly

Norwegian carried 3,615,319 passengers in August, an increase of 335,794 passengers (10 percent) compared to the same month last year.

The total traffic growth (RPK) increased by 31 percent this month, driven by a 33 percent capacity growth (ASK).

The load factor was 89.6 percent on the entire route network and 94 percent on Norwegian’s long-haul routes, which are operated by 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

Norwegian operated 99.4 percent of the scheduled flights in August, whereof 75.6 percent departed on time.

Norwegian’s fleet renewal program continues in 2018. The company took delivery of one Boeing 737 MAX 8 this month.

In total, this year Norwegian will take delivery of 11 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners,12 Boeing 737 MAX 8 and two Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

With an average age of only 3.7 years, Norwegian’s fleet is one of the world’s greenest and most modern.

The single most important action an airline can take to reduce its environmental footprint, is to invest in new aircraft and new technology.
