Low-cost carrier Norwegian continues to show strong traffic growth, according to the company’s latest monthly report.
Norwegian carried more than 2.9 million passengers in May, an increase of 11 percent compared to the same month in 2016.
The carrier has been rapidly expanding, particularly to the Caribbean, with new routes to Martinique, Guadeloupe and Puerto Rico in recent years.
“We are very pleased to see that more passengers chose to fly Norwegian. Our international growth continues, in line with the company’s global strategy, enabling us to create more jobs,” said Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos.
A total of 2,923,597 passengers chose to fly with Norwegian in May, 281,931 more than the same period last year. Total traffic growth (RPK) increased by 17 per cent, while the capacity growth increased by 19 per cent.
