It’s that time of year again. When pop-up mall kiosks are chock-full of shiny, shrink-wrapped new calendars for the the next year and Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair asks their flight attendants to strip to join the selection. Yes, the 2012 Girls of Ryanair charity calendar is now on sale.
This is the fourth year Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary has sold the calendar, which features 13 cabin crew (of nationalities Irish to Italian) wearing little more than skimpy bras and panties – underwear we doubt they regularly sport beneath their Ryanair uniforms.
But that’s not the point. The point is that Ryanair employs hot hosties that rival those of Virgin Atlantic and booking a Ryanair ticket comes with a chance to interact with these girls up close while en route to a long weekend in Lanzarote.
The 2012 Ryanair Cabin Crew Charity Calendar features 13 cabin crew wearing lingerie and bikinis as they pose in various locations. The girls selected the ‘Butterfly Children’ of the DEBRA charity from over 400 applicants to receive all proceeds this year. DEBRA will enable 50 families from throughout Europe, with children who suffer from the debilitating epidermolysis bullosa skin condition, to enjoy a respite week in DEBRA’s specially adapted holiday accommodation in Malaga, Spain.
The airline hopes to raise up to £85,000, bringing the total raised by Ryanair’s cabin crew to £430,000 since the first calendar was published in 2008.
Last year’s calendar went with a sporty, on-the-beach feel while this year’s style is decidedly burlesque.
To purchase the calendar, either take a Ryanair flight and shell out £8.50 onboard for it, or purchase it online right here.
