Norwegian continues to grow in all markets. Norwegian carried more than 1.6 million passengers in January 2015, an increase of five percent compared to January last year. The load factor was 80 percent in January, up 5.2 percentage points.
In January, 1,609,057 passengers flew with Norwegian. This is an increase of five percent compared to January 2014. The total passenger traffic (RPK) increased by 21 percent and the total capacity (ASK) increased by 13 percent this month. The load factor was 80 percent in January, up 5.2 percentage points.
“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,” said Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos.
Norwegian continues to renew its fleet. A total of 10 brand new Boeing 737-800s and one 787 Dreamliner aircraft will be delivered during 2015. Last year, Norwegian took delivery of 14 brand new Boeing 737-800 and four 787 Dreamliners. Norwegian’s fleet is one of Europe’s newest and most environmentally friendly.
Norwegian operated 99.5 percent of its scheduled flights in January, whereof 77.9 percent departed on time.
