A total of 129,664 passengers traveled with Norwegian’s aircraft in December. The decline compared to the same month of last year amounts to 94%.
Norwegian’s traffic figures for December are strongly affected by lower demand as a result of stricter travel restrictions throughout Europe, the company stated in a press release.
The low passenger numbers are marginally smaller than in the previous month.
In November, 124,481 customers flew with the company, 95% fewer than in the same period last year.
In the months before, the number of passengers was around 90% down from last year.
“Strong negative impact”
“The pandemic continues to have a strong negative impact on our operations, something we have seen since the whole of Norway shut down in March last year.
“Norwegian was on its way to a positive result for 2020, but instead, we were thrown into the battle of our lives, and 2020 has been very demanding,” Norwegian’s CEO Jacob Schram noted.
The company had an average of nine aircraft in operation in December, mainly on Norwegian domestic routes.
95.6% of planned flights were completed. The planes were a little over half full with a filling rate of 52.3%.
The punctuality of the flights in December was 88.5%.
