Norwegian Air Shuttle (NAS) lost $43m in costs and revenue due to the Scandinavian pilot strike during March when almost 2,000 flights were cancelled.

For the first time ever, the number of passengers NAS carried declined when compared with the same month in the previous year, dropping four per cent to 1,726,180 passengers, while cancelled flights amounted to a loss of $15m. Additional costs related to taking care of affected passengers totalled $12.5m.

NAS also estimates a $15m decrease in income through loss of bookings.

The strike was resolved last month after pilots agreed a new three-year pay deal with NAS.
