Norwegian adds 100,000 to February passenger numbers

Norwegian has reported a 12% increase in passengers for February 2011 compared with the same month last year.

Revenue passenger kilometres (RPKs) were up by 26% to 1,026 million from 815 million. Available seat kilometres (ASKs) were up by the same percentage to 1,358 million from 1,077 million. The load factor thus remained level year-on-year at 76%.

The total number of passengers flown in February 2011 was 935,488, compared to 834,884 last year, the 12% increase adding 100,604 passengers.

“We are pleased that our load factor remains stable despite a strong increase in total capacity. Six brand new Boeing 737-800s will enter Norwegian´s fleet in February and March. Not only will our new aircraft reduce the company´s total operational costs, they will also improve and enhance the passenger comfort significantly as they feature inflight WiFi and the new Sky Interior,” remarked Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos.
