“For the sixth consecutive month we are reporting a positive increase in passenger numbers. We are very happy to see that travel demand continues to be high as we enter the winter season. We are experiencing an increase in bookings across our European network,” said Geir Karlsen, CEO of Norwegian.

In October, Norwegian carried 1,203,205 passengers, which is an increase of close to 900,000 compared with the same period last year. Compared with October 2020, the total capacity Available Seat-Kilometres (ASK) has increased by 195% and passenger traffic Revenue Passenger Kilometres (RPK) up 340%. Load factor in October was 82.7%, an increase of 27 percentage points compared with last year.

Norwegian operated an average of 48 Boeing 737-800 aircraft in October; 99.9% of scheduled flights were operated, of which 88.3% departed on time.
