Aer Lingus to defend crown with formidable competition

We’re already set to welcome a strong delegation from our reigning champions Aer Lingus, with 17 runners, but the competition has never been fiercer. Last year’s champion team leader – Transatlantic Revenue Manager, Wayne Forde – had this to say when we caught up with him:

“As defending champions, we couldn’t be more stoked about getting the chance to win the ‘Fastest Airline in the World’ title for the fourth time. After extremely careful evaluation of our squad selection over a couple of beverages, we’ve assembled a team right for the occasion, but more importantly those that are keen to get involved in this very worthy charitable race.”
