Commenting on the strong passenger number result was Geir Karlsen, the CEO of Norwegian:

“July was an outstanding month for Norwegian in terms of traffic figures. We have welcomed the highest number of passengers this year, over 100,000 more compared to July last year.”

“Our colleagues in the air and on the ground have worked relentlessly to make sure our passengers reached their destinations safely and as smoothly as possible, despite a few challenging situations across airports in Europe”.


“The unstable weather in the Nordics this summer has clearly impacted travel patterns, and we notice continued strong bookings throughout the month.”

“I am very pleased to see that so many travelers choose to fly with us this summer, both domestically, within the Nordics, and across Europe.”

“I would like to thank all our colleagues for their contribution to taking care of our passengers during the busiest season of the year.”

“Our solid operational performance has been helped by exclusively serving our customers with our own fleet of aircraft and crew”.

With a 99.5% reliability rate currently, the carrier is making big strides in improvement, and all eyes are on them to see how the month of August goes for them.
