Low-cost air carrier Norwegian continues to show surging growth, according to the latest traffic numbers released by the company.
The European-based carrier that also flies to the Caribbean reported 3.1 million passengers in October, a 14 percent increase over the same month in 2016.
Total traffic growth increased by 29 percent, while capacity growth increased by 31 percent in the same period.
Norwegian’s Caribbean network significantly expanded last month with the launch of new routes to Martinique from both Fort Lauderdale and Providence, supplementing existing service from New York.
We’re very pleased to see that more passengers are choosing Norwegian for their travels,” said Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos. “The growth is highest on our intercontinental routes and the overall demand is satisfactory and stable. The competition is still strong, so global expansion is important to position ourselves in the market.”
