Air Canada has renewed its partnership with the Canadian Olympic Committee, extending its position as the official airline of Team Canada for the next four Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The renewal extends the deal through the 2030 Winter Olympics and Paralympics, and will debut with Paris 2024.

Air Canada will supply a Boeing 777 with a special livery to transport Team Canada Olympic and Paralympic athletes, coaches, and support staff to and from the games.

In addition to its position as the official airline of Team Canada, Air Canada has also announced 10 Team Air Canada athlete ambassadors, including athletes Luguentz Dort, Philip Kim, Pierce LePage, and Adriana Leon.

The airline has extended the athlete ambassador initiative, with a new group of athletes set to be chosen for each of the 2026, 2028, and 2030 Games.

Michael Rousseau, president and chief executive of Air Canada, has said: “We’re honored to extend our partnership with the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Committees as Team Canada’s official airline through 2030, including for Paris 2024.”
