In July, 695,830 passengers flew with Norwegian, which is almost twice as many as in July last year.

Travel to Northern Norway has picked up particularly this summer, and Norwegian increased its capacity to meet the demand to the northern parts of the country.

“In July, we had the highest number of ticket orders since society closed in March last year. Customers are aware that the travel experience is somewhat different, and they have been well prepared for rules and requirements for both entry and exit,” Norwegian’s CEO Geir Karlsen stated in a press release.

In July, Norwegian had 33 aircraft in operation, more than twice as many as in June. In order to meet the expected demand in the future, the company will further increase its route offer in the autumn and winter.

“We are pleased that the booking numbers are going up again, and it is good to see that many colleagues who have been laid off are now back at work. Even though the pandemic is far from over, we feel a sort of optimism that feels good after a long period of uncertainty,” Karlsen added.
