Air Canada has renewed its partnership as the Official Airline of Team Canada, unveiling a Boeing 777 plane with a Canadian Olympic theme on Thursday (May 30). 

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

"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," said Michael Rousseau, president and CEO of Air Canada, in a statement. "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, supported by its Going for Gold employee program, ensuring a seamless and easy travel experience to and from the Games.

The airline, which will hold airport celebrations as athletes depart and return from the Games, will provide special service and transport for all Team Canada athletes travelling to the Games, and include other perks, such as complimentary 35K Aeroplan Elite status, care packages and amenity kits.
