Norse Atlantic Airways, the Norwegian low-cost long-haul operator, has reported strong year-on-year performance figures for October. The airline is also giving a boost to its onboard customer product while it continues to open new routes.
Last month, the airline carried a total of 102,410 passengers, which represents a 68% increase over the same month the previous year. Additionally, the carrier operated 403 flights during the month – a year-on-year increase of 31%.
The airline claims its 403 flights had a completion factor of 1000% for the month, while 83% of them (335 flights) arrived within 15 minutes of their scheduled arrival time. This is an improvement of 8% over October 2022.

Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO and founder of Norse Atlantic Airways, said: “We are pleased that October has continued with a strong year-on-year performance trend across all areas of the business.”
Norse Atlantic operates long-haul services from bases Oslo Gardermoen Airport (OSL) as well as London-Gatwick Airport (LGW) and Paris Charles De Gaulle (CDG).
