Norwegian Air has seen a three million increase in passenger numbers in 2014 compared to the previous year.

The carrier reached nearly 24m passengers in 2014 as it launched new routes between the UK to the US and Spain as well as other European services.

Its load factor improved three percentage points from 78% to 81%, with a similar increase also seen in December alone.

“We have welcomed an increasing number of new customers on board. Not least in new markets outside Scandinavia, many have tried Norwegian for the first time, liked our product and returned on their next journey,” said Bjorn Kjos, CEO of Norwegian.

“This makes us better equipped to meet increasing international competition. England, USA and Spain are examples of markets with large customer volumes where growth boosts future competitiveness, which in turn secures jobs at Norwegian.”
