Ryanair 2014 Charity Calendar Video Takes Youtube By Storm
OVER 450,000 VIEWS IN JUST 7 DAYS AS CHARITY CALENDAR SALES GO THROUGH THE ROOF
Ryanair, Europe’s low fares airline, today (29 Oct) welcomed the news that its behind-the-scenes video the making of Ryanair 2014 Cabin Crew Charity Calendar has been viewed over 450,000 times on YouTube in just 7 days – smashing last years viewing record. The ‘making of’ video was released last Tuesday morning (22 Oct), a day before the launch of the 2014 calendar and had already topped the 100,000 view mark 48 hours later.
Ryanair’s Cabin Crew Calendar stars have raised over €600,000 for charity since 2008 and are well on course to raise another €100,000 this year, with over 2,000 calendars sold in just 7 days. The remaining 8,000 copies are available onboard all Ryanair aircraft, online at www.ryanair.com
and from Teenage Cancer Trust for just €10/£10, with all proceeds going to the Teenage Cancer Trust (UK), to help support young people in the UK battling with cancer.
Ryanair’s Robin Kiely said:
“Fans have been logging on to Ryanair.com and the Ryanair YouTube channel in their thousands to catch a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the 2014 Ryanair Cabin Crew Charity Calendar which, shot on location in Chania, Crete, earlier this year. Once again, support for Ryanair’s Cabin Crew Charity Calendar has been fantastic with over 2,000 calendars sold in the first week of release – as well as over 450,000 video views on YouTube.
We hope our 2014 Charity Calendar will now reach its goal of raising €100,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust, which does outstanding work helping young people aged between 13 and 24 with cancer. We encourage everyone to buy one of the few remaining copies for themselves.”
