Ryanair 2013 Cabin Crew Charity Calendar Video Takes YouTube By Storm
OVER 175,000 VIEWS IN JUST 2 DAYS AS CALENDAR SALES GO THROUGH THE ROOF
Ryanair, Europe’s only ultra-low cost airline, today (22 Oct) revealed the behind-the-scenes video of its 2013 Ryanair Cabin Crew Charity was viewed over 175,000 times on YouTube in just 2 days – smashing its previous viewing record set last year. The ‘making of’ video was released last Tuesday morning, coinciding with the launch of the 2013 calendar in Warsaw and had already hit the 70,000 view mark 24 hours later.
It had topped 175,000 views by Thursday afternoon and reached over 275,000 views on Monday morning, proving without doubt that the 2013 Ryanair Cabin Crew Charity Calendar (and video) are the hottest yet. The ‘making of’ video shows 16 of Ryanair’s hottest cabin crew on location during the sizzling calendar photo-shoot in Paphos last June and can be viewed on Ryanair.com or the RyanairNews channel on YouTube.
Ryanair’s Cabin Crew Calendar stars have raised over €500,000 for charity since 2008 and are well on course to raise another €100,000 this year, with some 2,000 calendars already sold. The remaining 8,000 copies of the calendar are available onboard all Ryanair aircraft and online at www.ryanair.com
for just €10, with all proceeds going to the TVN Foundation in Warsaw, Poland, who are raising funds to help children suffering from cystic fibrosis.
Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:
“After carrying more than 7m passengers for each of the past six months (the only airline in Europe to top 7m international passengers in one month), including 8.9m passengers in August, Ryanair knows all about breaking records – and now our sexy cabin crew are smashing records of their own.
Fans have been logging on to Ryanair.com and the RyanairNews YouTube channel in their thousands to catch a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the 2013 Ryanair Cabin Crew Charity Calendar photoshoot, which took place in sunny Paphos in Cyprus earlier this year. Once again, support for Ryanair’s Cabin Crew Charity Calendar has been fantastic with 2,000 calendars already snapped up in the first week of release – as well as over 275,000 video views.
We hope our 2013 Charity Calendar will now reach its goal of raising €100,000 for the TVN Foundation in Warsaw, which does outstanding work helping children with cystic fibrosis. We encourage everyone to buy one of the few remaining copies for themselves, which will ensure that rain, hail or shine, every day in 2013 will be hot.”
