TOULOUSE, France (Reuters) – The head of budget airline easyJet (LON:) has told the boss of Ryanair to focus on running his own airline after questions were raised over the British carrier’s independence.

According to the Financial Times, Michael O’Leary, chief executive of Ryanair Group was quoted last week as saying that Wiz Air and easyJet would have to merge in order for the sector’s consolidation following COVID-19.

Johan Lundgren of easyJet stated in an interview that “it is” complete nonsense. I would encourage anyone running an airline to concentrate on their business and not speculate on others.
