Norwegian Air carryings recover to pre-pandemic levels

Norwegian Air flew the highest number of monthly passengers in July since the outbreak of the pandemic.

The Scandinavian budget carrier’s passenger levels rose to more than 2.2 million against less than 700,000 in the same month last year. The load factor was close to 95%.

The airline operated an average of 70 aircraft and 99.7% of scheduled flights were completed.

However, punctuality, as measured by the number of flights departing within 15 minutes of scheduled time, was just 62.2% in July.

The airline pointed out that as many as 93% of all flights arrived on schedule or no more than an hour late.

Chief executive Geir Karlsen said: “This has been a great summer for Norwegian. In July, we had the highest load factor in many years, and we operated close to all scheduled flights despite the many demanding challenges the industry has faced.

“These results have been made possible thanks to our dedicated colleagues who are putting our customers at the heart of our operations.”

Norwegian entered into agreements with regional carrier Wideroe and long-haul start-up Norse Atlantic Airways last month with the aim to establish ticketing co-operation and simplify travel for customers.
