Norwegian Airlines said in a statement that it expects to fly back 18 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in October this year. Meanwhile, the company announced a downward revision of capacity growth expectations, reducing the target of ASK growth from 5-10% to 0-5%.
As Europes third-largest low-cost airline, Norwegian Airlines made a net profit of 82.8 million Norwegian kroner in the second quarter of this year, much lower than Norwegian kroner 300.3 billion in the same period in 2018. Norwegian Airlines had previously said that a no-fly Boeing 737MAX would undermine the companys plans to return to profitability this year.
