Continued solid demand for air travel
“We are well positioned to respond to seasonal variations. We have adjusted our capacity to meet the lower demand during the winter season and have hedged a total of 15 percent of our estimated fuel consumption for 2023. Looking ahead, we continue to see a pent-up demand for air travel, especially to sunny beach destinations. We recently launched several new routes to destinations across Europe, and we are eager to welcome both passengers and new colleagues during what we expect to be a busy summer of 2023,” said Karlsen.
Norwegian is Norway’s largest airline and one of Europe’s leading low-cost carriers. Norwegian has 4,000 employees and is increasing its staff with additionally 750 employees across the company’s bases in the Nordics and in Europe for the summer of 2023. For the summer of 2023, Norwegian plans for a fleet increasing to 85 aircraft. This will allow Norwegian to offer more departures on the most popular routes, giving the customers even more flexibility as they plan their travels. Norwegian currently has 239 routes for sale in the summer period, running from March to October 2023.
