Norwegian reports passenger growth and a negative result in a seasonally weak first quarter

Press Releases   •   Apr 27, 2017 07:30 EDT

Norwegian today reported its first quarter results for 2017 with a result of -1.5 billion Norwegian kroner (-$174 million). Despite strong passenger growth, higher fuel costs, tough competition and a stronger NOK contributed to the negative result. This year’s Easter led to a shift of income over to April, as last year’s Easter was in March. The company launched 39 new routes this quarter.

Norwegian Reports 12 Percent Passenger Growth in March

Press Releases   •   Apr 06, 2017 06:00 EDT

OSLO/FORNEBU (APRIL 6, 2017) – Norwegian reported its traffic results for March 2017. A total of 2,453,551 passengers chose to fly with Norwegian in March – 258,514 more than the same period last year. The total traffic growth (RPK) increased by 16 percent, while the capacity growth (ASK) increased by 22 percent. The load factor was 84.1 percent, down 3.8 percentage points. The period is influenced by the fact that Easter is in April this year, whereas it was in Mach last year, consequently reducing the unit revenue by approximately 10 percent.

“We are very pleased to see that more passengers chose to fly Norwegian. The growth is primarily driven by our international traffic, which is becoming increasingly important in the company’s global expansion,” said CEO of Norwegian, Bjørn Kjos.

Norwegian operated 99.5 percent of the scheduled flights in March, whereof 78.5 percent departed on time.

Norwegian’s fleet renewal program continues with full force in 2017. The company took delivery of three Boeing 737-800s and one Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in March. This year, Norwegian will take delivery of nine Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, 17 Boeing 737-800 and six Boeing 737 MAX. With an average age of only 3.6 years, Norwegian’s fleet is one of the world’s “greenest” and most modern.
