Air Canada Fan Flight: Bringing Young Sports Fans Closer to the Action

Air Canada has announced the return of its Fan Flight program for young sports fans for the 2023/24 season. The program recognizes and rewards young sports fans who are making a difference with one-of-a-kind NHL and NBA experiences. The beloved Air Canada program celebrates diverse winners from across the country, all united by a deep love of Canadian sports. The program aims to surprise and delight young sports fans across the country with more unique NHL or NBA game experiences. This year, the new program celebrates young fans who are making a difference with exciting rewards and surprises, including a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see their favourite team play an away game in a U.S. city. According to Andy Shibata, VP – Brand, Air Canada, the annual program recognizes and rewards everyday champions and celebrates the unmatched commitment of Canadian fans.

Through Fan Flight, Air Canada has supported more than 20 foundations and charities since its creation in 2018, bringing dozens of deserving fans closer to their favourite teams. The program has rewarded inspiring fans from all walks of life across the country, including a young girl from Edmonton’s Inuit community who shared her passion for hockey with other youth, a young Montreal Canadiens fan who underwent numerous surgeries after a concussion, two friends and hockey lovers from Calgary who are on the autism spectrum, and a student from Ottawa dedicated to amplifying BIPOC voices.

For a chance to win, Canadians can nominate a young fan deserving of this incredible experience on the Air Canada Fan Flight website. The online contest is open until November 19, 2023. The Fan Flight program’s top prize, the Fly Away experience, is every sports lover’s dream come true. Winners enjoy complimentary airfare and game tickets to see their favorite team play on the road in the U.S., as well as a special departure gate send-off with a team mascot, special prizing from Aeroplan, accommodation, and much more. Canadians can also get involved and give back through Fan Flight in another way. During the Air Canada promo night, fans in attendance can donate pocket change at the AC booth as part of its Every Bit Counts Program.

Air Canada supports the country’s teams while giving back to the community and takes enormous pride as Canada’s national carrier in supporting Canadian teams. All Canadian audiences can have the opportunity to win through digital, social, radio, as well as in-arena. Visit to take part or win an Air Canada Fan Flight.
