“We are now in a strong financial position in the traditionally more challenging winter months,” chief executive Gair Carlsen said in a statement.
“We have seen a positive trend of forward booking month by month and a growing number of passengers are choosing Norwegian flights across our European network,” he added.
Bookings have risen in response to vaccinations and relaxation of travel bans, and the agency says it expects its available seat kilometers (ASK), a core capacity metric, to increase from 18.2 billion in 2020 to 29 billion in 2022.
From 2021 to date, ASK stands at only 4.8 billion kilometers.
