Air Canada has announced its own celebrations for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games with Aeroplan's "Behind the Games."
In 2021, Aeroplan hosted seven sessions, offering Aeroplan Members the opportunity to hear from their favourite NHL team’s coach. Now, the rewards program is hosting two, virtual "Behind the Games" sessions during the Olympics, available exclusively to Aeroplan Members.
The first event is 04FEB at 8:30 pm ET, which provides Aeroplan members the opportunity to cheer on Team Canada, and Team Air Canada partner athletes like Mikaël Kingsbury, a freestyle skier. The panel will feature Alexandre Despatie, two-time Olympic medalist in diving, as the moderator speaking with special guests Scott Moir, three-time Olympic champion and five-time Olympic medalist in ice dancing, and Alexandre Bilodeau, two-time Olympic champion in freestyle skiing.
The second event on 15FEB at 8:30 pm ET, which celebrates women’s Olympic prowess ahead of the women’s hockey final round, where members can cheer on Air Canada partner athlete Marie-Philip Poulin and the team. These discussions will feature special guests Stephanie Labbé, Olympic champion and two-time Olympic medalist in soccer, along with Caroline Ouellette and Julie Chu, both four-time Olympic champions in women’s hockey.
