Norwegian’s load factor increased to 85 percent, up 4 percentage points compared to March last year. The airline recorded a strong regularity of 99.6 percent in March, while on-time performance improved compared to previous months.

“We are delighted to publish strong traffic figures yet again, this month got an extra boost thanks to the early Easter holiday. The high regularity we had in March reflects the great work all our colleagues do every day to make sure our customers can trust Norwegian for all their travels. This is especially important over Easter with so many customers having planned their vacation trips, and I am proud to say that we had zero cancellations for all our international flights. We are now looking ahead to the next vacation season and are this week kicking off with a “Spring Sale” campaign. The booking trends for the summer season are beginning to look very good, but we naturally anticipate a weaker April as a result of the Easter holiday coming early this year,” said Geir Karlsen, CEO of Norwegian.

Norwegian Passenger Traffic In March

Norwegian had 1,544,289 passengers in March. The capacity (ASK) was 2,441 million seat kilometers, up 4 percent from the same period last year. Actual passenger traffic (RPK) was 2,075 million seat kilometers. In March, Norwegian operated an average of 73 aircraft with a regularity of 99.6 percent. The punctuality, the share of flights departing within 15 minutes of scheduled time, was 86.7 percent, up 6 percentage points from March 2023.

Carbon Emissions Reduction

During March, CO2 emissions per actual passenger kilometer (grams of CO2 per RPK) were reduced by 10 percent compared to the same period last year. In total, this amounts to a reduction of about 250,000 passenger round-trips from Oslo to Bergen.

“We are very pleased to see that our work to reduce carbon emissions is paying off. The newer fleet contributes to this, in combination with better planning, resulting in a higher load factor. In addition, we are continuously working on optimizing our flight patterns with the help of advanced digital tools to further reduce fuel consumption. We have set an ambitious target of cutting emissions by 45 percent by 2030, and we believe that our combination of fleet renewal, operational efficiency, and the use of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) is the way to reach these targets,” said Geir Karlsen, CEO of Norwegian.

Widerøe Performance

Widerøe served 276,413 passengers in March, and the load factor increased by 6 percentage points to 70 percent. The airline also saw a marked improvement in operating performance, with improving regularity and 89 percent flight punctuality.
