OSLO (Reuters) - Norwegian Air's (OL:NWC) income per passenger grew less than expected in September but its aircraft filled up at a faster pace than last year, the carrier's monthly traffic report showed on Friday.

Europe's third largest budget carrier switched this year to prioritize profits over growth, but has been hampered by the grounding of Boeing (N:BA) 737 MAX aircraft and technical problems with Rolls Royce (L:RR) engines on Boeing 787s.

Norwegian's bondholders agreed last month to postpone repayment $380 million of outstanding debt for up to two years, in the company's latest bid to sort out its finances.

A string of European airlines folded in the last two years, including recent collapses of Aigle Azur, Adria Airways and travel firm Thomas Cook, but loss-making Norwegian has secured funding from shareholders to stay in the air.
