We are very pleased that an increasing number of passengers in Europe, USA, South America, The Middle East and Asia choose Norwegian for their travels, said CEO Bjrn Kjos of Norwegian. It is also satisfactory that even with a strong capacity growth our load factor is high. Our capacity growth is still high, but it is not increasing as rapidly as in previous months, which is in line with our strategy. We have been through a long period of strong growth and going forward we will reap what we have sown for the benefit of our customers, staff and shareholders.

Norwegian operated 99.2% of its scheduled flights in July, with 67.9% departing on time. Norwegian said that the poor on-time performance in July was influenced by widespread air traffic control strikes in Europe.
