Zuhal Sengul, 31, had previously modelled in a music video and for gothic-style photoshoots, something which her Turkish Airlines employers were unaware of.

In the music video, Sengul is seen strutting around in a black bikini, showing off her curvaceous figure and body art.

Defending their decision, a spokesperson for the airline said ‘simple make-up, immaculate and in pastel colours, is preferred for staff working in the service sector.’

Her sexy image was not inkeeping with Turkish Airlines

Just last year the airline banned staff from wearing lipstick, although they later retracted this decision after people protested on social media.

Turkish Airlines is apparently the fastest growing airline in the world, currently connecting several UK airports with Istanbul.
