Budget Irish airline Ryanair launched their 2013 annual charity calendar in Dublin this week.

First published in 2008, the infamous calendar features 12 of Ryanair’s real cabin crew who stripped off for the annual charity event. The images of the scantily clad employees were captured on location in Paphos, Greece.

Unlike previous years, the proceeds from the calendar will be donated to Polish charity, the TVN Foundation, which helps children suffering from cystic fibrosis.

“The 2013 Ryanair Cabin Crew Charity Calendar is hotter than ever, featuring the sexiest Ryanair cabin crew stunners in swimwear and lingerie,” the airline said in a statement.

The budget airline hopes to raise  €100,000 for the Warsaw based charity.

Dublin
native Lynn Jimenez, (25), made the cut for this year's calendar and dons a red bikini as Miss October.

"I've never done anything like this before," the stewardess told the Evening Herald. "I'm over the moon with how it went."

Last year’s calendar drew hundreds of complaints to the Advertising Standards Authority, with many saying the raunchy photos, were demeaning towards women. The Michael O’Leary led airline argued the photos were not sexist, as the females had volunteered for the photo shoot.

Speaking about the calender launch, Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said: “Ryanair’s gorgeous cabin crew are pleased to once again strip off for charity.”
