Most Successful Companies Founded by Immigrants: EasyJet


EasyJet was launched by Greek Cypricot Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou with two Boeing 737-200 aircrafts, initially operating two routes: London Luton to Glasgow and Edinburgh.

It has seen a rapid growth since its establishment in 1995, fuelled by a high demand for low-cost air travel. In 2015, EasyJet operated on 735 routes and carried more than 70 million passengers, making it the second-largest short-haul airline in Europe by number of passengers carried, behind Ryanair.
