Canada Basketball and Flair Airlines, Canada’s everyday low fare airline, have announced a multi-year partnership that establishes Flair as the Official Airline of Canada Basketball.

“At Flair, we are on a mission to build an inclusive, sustainable and affordable air travel culture,” said Nelson Phillips, Vice President, Marketing & Communications, Flair Airlines.

A long-time partner of the CEBL and Canada Basketball, Flair Airlines is committed to growing the basketball community, for all levels, in Canada. Most recently, Flair joined Canada Basketball as the Official Airline Partner of the GLOBAL JAM FIVES tournament, held in July 2022.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Flair Airlines as the Official Airline of Canada Basketball as we look to connect the basketball dots across the country, while delivering memorable moments for fans attending our events,” said Michael Bartlett, President & CEO of Canada Basketball.

“It was at the Flair Airlines Hangar in Edmonton our Senior Men’s National Team earned its spot at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023, so today’s announcement again highlights Flair’s investment in basketball.

“Flair’s partnership will support our players and their loved ones get to their next game in Canada, and ensure basketball remains an accessible sport for all to participate in.”
