SAS has weeks left as Nordic king

By passenger growth, Norwegian set to take the crown
The dominance of SAS over Nordic skies since its first flight from Stockholm to New York 70 years ago is about to change. The pan-Scandinavian airline is about to be surpassed by Norwegian in annual passenger figures.
If 12-month passenger stats follow the same trend, SAS has about two months left before being usurped.
Norwegian flew more people than SAS over a one-month period for the first time in July 2015. By the end of October this year, just over 29 million passengers flew SAS over the previous 12 months, compared to 28.63 million on Norwegian.
With Norwegian’s 13% passenger growth over the last 12 months compared to SAS’s 3.3%, industry experts say that Norwegian will overtake SAS by the end of this year.
SAS has pulled out of its nosedive in recent years as cost cuts return it to profit, but Norwegian has been improving steadily since rebranding as a low-cost carrier in 2002.
