Norwegian reports rise in September passenger figures

Norwegian has announced that it carried more than 2.2 million passengers in September 2014, an increase of 16% compared to the same month last year.

The total number carried was 2,229,829 passengers, with the load factor also rising – by 3.1 percentage points – to 81.4%. The load factor rise comes from revenue passenger kilometres (RPKs) increasing by 43%, while available seat kilometres (ASKs) increased by just 37%.

“We’re very pleased that an increasing number of customers choose to fly Norwegian and that our passenger figures continue to rise – even with considerable capacity growth in new markets,” noted CEO Bjørn Kjos. “The fact that more customers outside of Scandinavia choose to fly with Norwegian, proves that we’re gaining a stronger international foothold and that quality flights and low fares are well received.”

Norwegian operated 99.7% of its scheduled flights in September, of which 86.8% departed on time. The company took delivery of two brand new Boeing 737-800s in September and will introduce a total of 14 Boeing 737-800s and four Boeing 787 Dreamliners to its fleet in 2014.
