Ryanair faces Spanish courts over 'sexist' calendar featuring staff in bikinis and underwear

Rynair is set to face court action in Spain over its annual calendar that features cabin staff wearing bikinis.

This year’s calendar, released in December, has provoked an angry response from the Provincial Association of Housewives and Consumers of Valencia who claim that the airline had exploited its staff.

According to the Daily Mirror, the private prosecution is reportedly set to take place in Malaga in front of three judges on 30 April with the aim of ruling the pictures included in the calendar as being illegal.

Money raised from the sale of the calendar, which has a print run of 10,000, is donated to charity.
