easyJet: “I’ve now been at easyJet for four months and completed my review of the business and capital structure. The strategy will build on the strength of easyJet's network and target leisure and business customers with its best value fares to convenient airports. easyJet is strongly positioned to take advantage of the continuing profitable growth opportunities in European short-haul. This combined with margin improvement through a tight focus on costs and accessing new revenue opportunities, means that easyJet is poised to continue the strong operating cash generation of the past few years,” Carolyn McCall, CEO.
