Norwegian reports solid April passenger figures

Norwegian (NAS) today reported April traffic results. More than 1.3 million passengers flew with the company in April, up 11 percent compared to the same month previous year. This month’s traffic figures were influenced by Easter, as a majority of the holiday travel was conducted the last weekend in March. The fact that Easter fell on an earlier date this year than previous year, influenced April’s traffic results. As the majority of the Easter holiday traffic was conducted the last weekend of March, both business and holiday travel the first week of April was considerably lower than usual. Norwegian carried 1,345,293 passengers in April, up 11 percent compared to April previous year. Norwegian had an ASK growth of 9 percent in April. The load factor was 76 percent, one percentage point lower than April last year. The yield improved by 6 percent from last year. ”We’re very pleased that more and more passengers choose to fly with us. Brand new aircraft with free in-flight WiFi continue to attract more passengers. 46 of our aircraft are now WiFi equipped. In April alone, more than one million passengers have had the opportunity to experience our WiFi on board,” said CEO Bjørn Kjos. The company operated 99.7 percent of its scheduled flights this month, whereof 88.8 percent departed on time.
