Norwegian carried almost 3.5 million passengers in June, an increase of 14 percent compared to the same month previous year.

A total of 3,497,286 passengers chose to fly with Norwegian in June, 437,883 more than the same period last year. The total traffic growth  increased by 44 percent, and the capacity growth  increased by 43 percent. The load factor was 90.5 percent, up 0.8 percentage points.

“Our capacity growth is still high, but it is not increasing as rapidly as previous months, which is in line with our strategy. We have been through a long period of strong growth and going forward we will reap what we have sown for the benefit of our customers, staff and shareholders,” said CEO of Norwegian, Bjørn Kjos.

Norwegian operated 99.4 percent of the scheduled flights in June, of which 70.9 percent departed on time. The on-time performance is heavily influenced by air traffic control strikes in Europe.
