Flair Becomes Official Airline of Canada Basketball

A new, multi-year partnership makes Flair Airlines the official airline of Canada Basketball, the not-for-profit organization which is the governing body of amateur basketball in Canada.


"At Flair, we are on a mission to build an inclusive, sustainable and affordable air travel culture. As Canada enters a golden era for the game, we're honoured to provide basketball players of all ages, and their families, with opportunities to travel to their next training camp, game or tournament through our new partnership with Canada Basketball," said Nelson Phillips, Vice President, Marketing & Communications, Flair Airlines. "We are thrilled to be an official partner of Canada Basketball, and cheer on Team Canada."


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 JUL 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."

As the Official Airline of Canada Basketball, Flair is the preferred airline for all Canada Basketball age-group players, coaches, officials and staff. Flair will also bring fans closer to the game with its #ShotFromTheDot halftime activation, where one fan will have a chance to win free airfare at every Canada Basketball national team home game. 

This summer, Flair will join Canada Basketball as the Presenting Partner of the GLOBAL JAM FESTIVAL, a celebration of basketball, local art, and culture at Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square with the 3x3 Canada Quest National Championships, celebrity charity game and community court, as well as vendor market, food trucks, music and more.  Flair will support Canada's 3x3 national teams with front of jersey visibility for both Canada Basketball's men's and women's jerseys, and bring 3x3 national team fans behind the scenes with digital travel and competition content.
