easyJet less risky than Ryanair - Sir Stelios

easyJet founder, Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, expressed (at the 2009 World Low Cost Airline Congress, 30-Sep-2009) his belief that easyJet’s model is more resilient and offers a lower level of risk than that pursued by Ryanair.

Sir Stelios challenged easyJet over its planned growth rate earlier in the year.
