Norwegian reports long-haul passenger growth

Increased low-fare long-haul demand helped push up Norwegian’s passenger numbers in September.

Europe’s third largest low-cost carrier saw carryings rise by 14% to 2.8 million passengers over the same month last year.

The load factor increased by 1.2 percentage points to almost 90%

Norwegian’s long-haul routes had a load factor of 96% and a 50% growth in passengers.

Chief executive Bjørn Kjos said: “September’s figures show that our positive development continues across all markets, both with more passengers and a high load factor.

“It is also satisfying to see that more customers are choosing Norwegian when they are flying between the US and Europe and Europe and Asia.”

The carrier took delivery of two Boeing 737-800s in September.
