While SAS reported its worst result ever, Norway's newest airline, Norwegian, presented a pre-tax surplus of NOK 11.2 million for the first quarter of this year.

Norwegian started operating in the fall of 2002, and the result of that first year was a deficit of NOK 52 million after taxes.

So far this year the airline has registered an average of 97,000 sold tickets a month. In April 106,000 tickets were sold, and the prognosis for May is 120,000, the company reports.

-This shows that the Norwegian public is supporting the new Norwegian low-price airline, says Norwegian CEO Bjoern Kjos.
