In September, 997,719 passengers flew with Norwegian, an increase of 206% from the same month in 2020.
This is the fifth month in a row that the airline has registered an increase in the number of passengers.
“Since the government reopened society, the demand for flights has been high, and demand has increased steadily both when it comes to domestic travel and European destinations,” Norwegian’s CEO Geir Karlsen stated.
Customers book trips both for the coming winter season and for next summer, and there is an increase in bookings for both big cities and typical summer destinations, according to Karlsen.
Several routes relaunched
The company has relaunched several routes to Europe as a result of more people now traveling.
The total capacity has increased by 154% from September last year. Norwegian had a total of 46 aircraft in operation in September, and their punctuality was 92.1%.
The increased demand for travel has led to the reopening of Norwegian’s bases in Bergen, Stavanger, and Trondheim in September.
