Global expansion driven by new routes, high load factors and continued fleet renewal, contributed to Norwegian’s best ever annual result, with a net profit of $136 million (1,135 million Norwegian kroner). The load factor was 88 percent.
Today, Norwegian was named one of Fast Company’s 10 Most Innovative Companies in Travel for 2017. The magazine’s annual ranking of the world’s Most Innovative Companies honors leading enterprises and rising newcomers that exemplify the best in nimble business and impactful innovation. Norwegian was the only airline featured on this year’s travel list.
Norwegian carried more than 2.1 million passengers in January, an increase of 20 percent compared to the same month previous year. The growth is primarily driven by international expansion; the routes between the UK and the US, as well as the domestic routes in Spain are contributing strongly to the growth. The load factor was 83 percent, an increase of 1.3 percentage points.
Norwegian’s partnership with UNICEF has helped many children in need in 2016. With a simple click during their booking process, Norwegian’s passengers have donated more than $600,000/5 million Norwegian kroner to support UNICEFs work for children.
Norwegian reported its highest ever passenger figures in a single year with almost 30 million passengers and a load factor of 88 per cent in 2016. The launch of 34 new routes and a substantial increase of intercontinental traffic contributed considerably to the growth.
