Norwegian reports higher load factor and continued traffic growth in January 2015

Norwegian has reported that it carried more than 1.6 million passengers in January 2015, an increase of 5% compared with January last year.Revenue passenger kilometres (RPKs) increased by 21% to 2,745 million from 2,266 million in January 2014. Available seat kilometres (ASKs), however, were increased by only 13% to 3,431 million from last January’s 3,031 million.These figures created a load factor increase of 5.2 percentage points with January 2015’s figure reaching 80.0 compared with 74.8 last January. As noted, the number of passengers carried rose by 5% to 1,609,057 from the 1,530,441 carried in January 2014.“I’m very pleased that we have a higher load factor in a low season month like January. The increase in traffic growth is mainly due to a stronger focus on the European market, along with a considerable growth in our long-haul operation,” commented Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos.Last year, Norwegian took delivery of 14 brand new Boeing 737-800s and four 787s. A total of 10 new 737-800s and one 787 are scheduled for delivery during 2015.
