Also today, October 24th, Norwegian has reported its best ever quarterly result with a profit before tax of NOK 2.2 billion (+38%). Unit revenue and revenue per passenger kilometer (yield) both increased by 3 percent during the 3rd quarter. Total revenue was NOK 14.4 billion, an increase of 8 percent from the same period last year, primarily driven by intercontinental growth. Norwegian carried approximately 10.5 million passengers; a reduction of 3 percent due to lower capacity. The load factor was 91.2 percent, up 0.7 percentage points. More details, here.
