Last July, the low-cost airline Norwegian carried 3.714 million passengers, a decline of 2% or just over 81,000 customers compared to July 2018. However, the occupancy rate of Norwegian aircraft increased by 0.5% making it to a total of 93.5% in average.
In terms of flights, more than 99% of the planned flights actually took place and 68% took off in accordance with forecasts. This figure was affected in particular by air transport regulations but also by the replacement of the 737MAX and 787 Dreamliner.
“After a period of strong expansion and investment, growth is slowing down, which is in line with our strategy to move from growth to profitability,” said Geir Karlsen, CEO and interim CFO of Norwegian.
