The Norwegian aviation industry is slowly recovering from the pandemic. In March, around 940,00 traveled with Norwegian – 300,000 more than in February.
The airline had an average of 48 aircraft in operation last month. It plans to have about 70 aircraft in operation by the summer – a significant increase from the pandemic years of 2020 and 2021.
“We now have considerable flexibility in the use of our aircraft. After the restructuring, we have lower debt, an adapted fleet and organization, and we have received new capital.
“It has been a tough time, but the result is that we are stronger now than before the pandemic,” Grete Roald, Vice President of Communications at Norwegian, wrote in an email to Norway Today.
Upward market trend
“Booking figures have improved throughout recent weeks, and we are pleased to see this continued upward trend in the market. We are seeing a busy Easter travel period with many travelers and several full flights.
“Our summer program started at the end of March. It will last until the end of October. Our customers can choose between almost 280 routes to popular destinations in Europe, with a fleet of 70 aircraft.
“We have opened many routes that have been paused in recent years, in addition to introducing completely new destinations. We experience increased demand from customers, and we look forward to welcoming them on board,” Roald pointed out.
She also revealed Norwegian’s top 10 destinations for the summer of 2022:
