Norwegian and Finnair report increase of passengers in August


Norwegian's traffic figures for August show a steady increase in passenger numbers. As Norwegian's route network grows, future bookings also continue to increase as more people receive vaccinations and as EU/EEA countries accept COVID certificates for travel. As a result of the increased demand, Norwegian has expanded its route offerings for the autumn season.

The airline carried 790 220 passengers in August, more than 1.5 times what it carried last year. By comparison with August 2020, the total capacity (ASK) increased by 129 per cent and passenger traffic (RPK) by 168 per cent. Moreover, the load factor in August was 72.6 per cent, which is an increase of 10 percentage points when compared to last year.

The average daily number of flights was 127, an increase of 9.5 per cent compared to August 2020 and nearly 20 per cent compared to July 2021.
