Terror Attacks Will Not Dent EasyJet’s Growth, Says CEO

EasyJet Plc is confident passenger demand will continue unabated by coordinated terrorist attacks in Paris. The travel and tourism industry is under pressure after the downing of a Metrojet passenger jet over Egypt two weeks ago. Terrorists caused the crash, which killed 224 people, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday. Still, travellers have already proved undaunted by previous attacks in London and the U.S., EasyJet Chief Executive Officer Carolyn McCall said. “People will want to continue to live their lives, and traveling is part of that,” McCall said in an interview with Bloomberg’s Anna Edwards on “Countdown.”
