Norwegian says it experienced a strong passenger growth of 23% in September with a load factor of 81%.
A total of 1,487,264 passengers flew with Norwegian in September, while traffic growth (RPKs) was 27% and the load factor was 81%, up 4 percentage points from September 2010.
“During the past 12 months, 15 million passengers chose to travel with Norwegian. Our passengers appreciate more brand new aircraft and inflight WiFi combined with a record high regularity and very high punctuality. The high load factor is also important from an environmental perspective,” said CEO Bjorn Kjos of Norwegian.
In September the carbon emissions per passenger kilometres was 9% lower than the same month last year.
