Using their Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, the carrier is wanting to capitalise on the Caribbean market during the Winter 2023/24 season.

“The inauguration of our flights to Montego Bay and Barbados marks a significant moment for Norse Atlantic Airways.”

“We are thrilled to offer travellers the opportunity to escape the winter chill and experience the unparalleled beauty of these Caribbean destinations.”

“These routes are a testament to our commitment to providing seamless, comfortable, and memorable travel experiences”.

In October, the month saw an average load factor of 75 per cent, representing an increase of 15 percentage points (p.p.) year on year.

A notable standout for the month was the airline’s stellar on-time performance; achieving a perfect completion rate of 100% scheduled flights.

During October, Norse Atlantic Airways had 102,410 passengers across 403 flights, with 83 per cent of flights arriving within 15 minutes of their scheduled arrival time and a completion rate of 100 per cent.

With a strong month’s performance under its belt, the Norse carrier will now look towards consolidating its winter sun routes in the closeout to the year.
