Longtime JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes will retire, the airline announced Monday, and will be succeeded by airline president Joanna Geraghty.

Hayes will step down effective Feb 12., the airline said, citing health reasons.

“I’ve loved working in this industry,” Hayes said in a statement. “However, the extraordinary challenges and pressure of this job have taken their toll, and on the advice of my doctor and after talking to my wife, it’s time I put more focus on my health and well-being.”
