Around 1.9 million passengers flew with Norwegian in June – the highest number since before the pandemic.
The figure corresponds to an increase of 19% from the previous month.
“I am very pleased to see that we carried out close to 100% of the approximately 400-450 daily flights we have set up in June, in a month that has been very challenging for us with strikes among aircraft maintenance engineers – in addition to the many the capacity challenges the industry faces at some airports in Europe,” Geir Karlsen, CEO of Norwegian, stated.
In June, a new collective agreement was negotiated between Norwegian and the Pilot Union and the Cabin Staff Association, while negotiations between NHO Luftfart and the Norwegian Aircraft Technician Organization ended with a strike and lockout. The strike lasted ten days before the government intervened.
“We are very happy that there is an agreement with both the cabin crew and the pilots on a new collective agreement and that we have the aircraft maintenance engineers back at work. This means that our routes operate as planned. We have high demand, but there is still spare capacity for many destinations in Europe,” Karlsen added.
Norwegian had 1,937,318 passengers in June, compared with 225,509 in June 2021.
