Over a million passengers travelled with Norwegian in November
Norwegian's traffic figures for November show that for a second consecutive month over one million passengers travelled with Norwegian. Adjustments to our capacity and route network for the winter season have been well adapted to customer demand.
“The result shows that we have done well in adapting capacity to customers' travel needs. Spain is one of the markets where we have seen a good development in bookings. In the last month, we have made it even easier for customers to book with confidence by extending the possibility of one fee-free change even on the most restricted tickets,” said Geir Karlsen, CEO of Norwegian.
In November, Norwegian carried 1,005,380 passengers, compared with 124,481 in November last year. Compared to November 2020, the total capacity (ASK) has increased by 541 percent and passenger traffic (RPK) is up 1007 percent.
In addition, the load factor in November was 76.6 per cent.
In November, Norwegian had an average of 49 aircraft in operation, while 99.8 per cent of scheduled flights were operated. Punctuality was 91.3 percent.

Norwegian was founded in 1993 but began operating as a low-cost carrier with Boeing 737 aircraft in 2002. Since then, our mission has been to offer affordable fares for all and to allow customers to travel the smart way by offering value and choice throughout their journey.
Norwegian has been voted Europe’s Best Low-Cost airline by Skytrax for six consecutive years and won Airline Program of the Year Europe & Africa at the Freddie Awards for four consecutive years. Since 2012, Norwegian has won over 55 awards for our service, product, and innovation in the industry.
We were the first airline in the world to join the UN Climate Secretariat’s climate action-initiative in 2019, pledging to work systematically to become carbon neutral by 2050.
Norwegian operates a short haul network across the Nordics and to key European destinations providing customers with excellent quality at affordable fares.
