"This year we expect to raise another €100,000 for another great charity.”

The calendar, which will include at least 12 of the airline’s cabin crew, is expected to raise up to €100,000 for the chosen partner.

The charity calendar initiative was launched in 2008 and, according to Ryanair’s head of communications, Stephen McNamara, has raised over €500,000 for the chosen causes to date, which have included Angels Quest, Dublin Simon Community, KIDS, De Tafel and Debra Ireland. 

“Ryanair’s stunning cabin crew will once again strip-off to raise much needed funds for charity,” he said.  “This year we expect to raise another €100,000 for another great charity.”
