LONDON – Norwegian announced earlier this week that they handled 1.4 million passengers in November 2022.

Such a figure is 37% higher than in the same period last year (November 2021).

Load factors averaged out at 79.5%, but Norwegian noted that on flights to Southern Europe, this has been at 90% and above.

Across the board, Norwegian operated an average of 64 aircraft, which operated 99.7% of its scheduled flights.

Punctuality for the airline was 90.3% in November, which represents the number of flights departing within 15 minutes of the scheduled time.

Commenting on the results was Norwegian CEO Geir Karlsen, who said the following:

“We are satisfied with this month’s traffic numbers and associated top-line, and glad to see that a total of 1.4 million passengers chose to travel with us.”

“While we are now in the low season, demand for air travel continues to be persistent, particularly to our many popular beach destinations.”

“In November, the load factor on routes to sunnier destinations was close to 90 percent from Norway.”

“I am particularly delighted about this month’s punctuality, proving to be the best so far this year and a result of the efforts of our many dedicated colleagues who are doing their utmost to serve our customers every day,”

Numbers Set to Rise?

Back in September, Norwegian released their scheduling for the Summer 2023 season. Are numbers set to rise with this in mind?

The schedule for summer 2023 is already up for sale at and contains 239 routes spread across the market as followed:

  • Norway – 131 routes
  • Denmark – 51 routes
  • Sweden – 51 routes
  • Finland – 17 routes

Karlsen said the following about this expansion:

“We are pleased to present our flying schedule for the coming summer season.”

“The new schedule contributes to strengthening our position as a leading carrier in the Nordics with many high-frequency routes in and between the Nordic countries and to popular destinations across Europe.”

“We look forward to a good and busy summer season and to welcoming our passengers onboard.”

“I am happy that we have been able to gradually increase our capacity to match the demand in the market.”

“During the coming summer season, we expect to increase the capacity even further to the benefit of our travelers”.

It remains clear that Norwegian does seem to be on an upwards trend, which is good news for the carrier off the back of a tumultuous few years in operation.

Such restructuring of the business has clearly worked if they are able to expand their route network year-on-year and at a great time when air travel is trying to recover.

Looking ahead, it’s going to be interesting to see what else the airline has planned and whether this will stand to benefit them in a completely competitive European market.

But for now, all eyes will be on Norwegian to see how they will perform over the rest of this Winter season and whether they can provide a better financial footprint moving forward.
