VivaAerobus, the upstart Mexican low cost carrier has taken a page out of the Ryanair guide to getting people to pay attention to you.

Each year, Ryanair publishes a calendar with their sexiest flight attendants, so VivaAerobus decided to bring that concept to their own airline. Of course, since VivaAerobus is partially owned by the Ryan family, I’m sure they did not have to look too far for inspiration.

To give passengers an idea what they can expect in the calendar, they posted a short video clip of the “making of” on Youtube. The video clip may not be entirely “safe for work”, so save it till you can close your office door, or better yet, watch it on your mobile phone.

The calendar will be available at VivaAerobus ticket desks and on board the airline for $10, but the best part is that all proceeds benefit a Mexican children’s cancer institute, so don’t feel too guilty for buying one.

Can’t watch the video at work? Check out some of the images from the “making of”!


Get Them an ISLANDS Calendar!

We haven’t posted many gift giving ideas here for the season and I’ll let you know I have some pretty rock-your-socks off recommendations, but for now I offer you this nifty stocking stuffer idea. Let me remind you that it is simple, useful and it is the perfect purchase for those on a tight-holiday budget. Not everyone can afford the first-class ticket to Bora-Bora for their loved ones, but planning for an island vacation doesn’t have to stop here. Grab one of ISLANDS 2007 calendars and mark the days away until it’s time to sail away. The calendar runs for $11.97 from ISLANDS magazine and can be purchased here. To make it that much better they even have an extra island photo for January 2008 so your planning can take you further if necessary.
