"On behalf of the Board and management team, I would like to thank Dermot for his significant contribution to the group over the past four years. We would like to record our appreciation for his loyalty and dedication to Aer Lingus," commented Barrington.

On his decision to leave, Mannion remarked, "It has been a privilege to serve as Aer Lingus CEO for the past four years and to have led the company through a period of profound change.
