The new agreement extends through the 2030 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games and includes Paris 2024.

Adding to the excitement, Air Canada also unveiled at an event in Toronto a Boeing 777 with a special livery to transport Team Canada Olympians and Paralympians, coaches and support staff to and from the Games.

Michael Rousseau, President and Chief Executive Officer of Air Canada said: “We’re honoured to extend our partnership with the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Committees as Team Canada’s Official Airline through 2030, including for Paris 2024.

“We’re looking forward to proudly sharing the very best of Canada with the world as we cheer the nation’s top athletes on to Olympic and Paralympic success.”

Air Canada will #FlyTheFlag as the Official Airline of Team Canada for the next four Olympic and Paralympic Games.

This includes the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, to which the airline will transport more than 1,000 Team Canada athletes and delegation members.

David Shoemaker, Chief Executive Officer and Secretary General of the Canadian Olympic Committee said: “We are delighted to extend our long-standing relationship with Air Canada.

“For more than 30 years, Air Canada’s passion for Team Canada has been remarkable.

“We’re grateful for the exceptional travel experience they consistently offer our athletes, helping them compete at their best on the world’s biggest stage.”
