Norwegian flew more than 933 000 passengers in November. This is an increase of over 200 000 passengers or a 28 percent increase from the same month last year.
“November was another month with strong passenger growth. The positive development for the company means that we can offer our passengers a continually improving route portfolio.Last week we launched several new routes to and from Bergen, a strong contribution to the tourism industry and to employment growth in the western region of Norway”, said Bjørn Kjos, Chief Executive Officer of Norwegian.
No fuel surcharge at Norwegian
Norwegian chose to remove the fuel surcharge all together last year. The removal of the fuel surcharge has generated lower income per sold passenger kilometer (yield), which is in line with the lower fuel cost and has resulted in lower fares for our passengers. The yield development is also a consequence of an increase in average flying distance and the introduction of new aircraft with higher capacity and lower unit cost.
The cabin factor for the Group was 74 percent in November, as opposed to 75 percent last year. The company operated 99.8 percent of the planned flights in November, whereof 82 percent departed on schedule.
