Norwegian carried more than 2.3 million passengers in June 2014 – an increase of 21% compared with last June – and had a load factor of 82.5%.
Norwegian carried 2,304,506 passengers in June, with revenue passenger kilometres (RPKs) increased by 45%, while available seat kilometres (ASKs) increased by 39%. The load factor thus rose by 2.9 percentage points.
“I’m pleased that we keep increasing the load factors even with major capacity growth. This proves that our offer of quality flights at affordable fares is welcomed by the customers. We continue to attract new customers in markets outside Scandinavia, in line with our international strategy,” said Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos.
In June, Norwegian took delivery of a brand new Boeing 737-800, as well as a new 787 Dreamliner. The carrier will take delivery of 14 Boeing 737-800s and four 787s during 2014.
