Norwegian carried more than 3.3 million passengers in September. The unit revenue increased for the sixth consecutive month and was up by six percent compared to the same month previous year.

A total of 3,310,424 passengers chose to fly with Norwegian in September. The total traffic (RPK) increased by two percent, the capacity growth (ASK) was one percent and the load factor increased by 1.1 percentage point to 90 percent.

“As we are moving from growth to profitability, I am pleased that our unit revenue continued to increase for the sixth consecutive month and that passenger demand has been stable and solid. Norwegian’s operational performance continues to improve, and we are on track to reach the targeted cost-reductions of two billion NOK in 2019,” said Acting CEO and CFO of Norwegian, Geir Karlsen.

“The outlook going forward is promising, and for the upcoming winter season, we have adjusted our route portfolio and capacity to ensure that we are well positioned to meet the actual demand,” he added.

The continued fleet renewal contributed to a further reduction of CO2 emissions in September with 70 grams per passenger kilometer, a reduction of 0.3 percent compared to the same period last year. With an average age of 3.8 years, Norwegian has one of the world’s most environmentally friendly fleets. Thanks to this, the company has reduced its per passenger emissions by 30 percent since 2008.Norwegian operated 99.3 percent of the scheduled flights in September, whereof 79.8 percent departed on time. The use of wetlease aircraft in September affected the on-time performance negatively.
