Travel

As an official partner of the Canadian Paralympic Committee, Air Canada is the preferred air travel provider and will be transporting Team Canada to and from Paris. We suggest you consider their options for travelling to Paris. With that said, Paris is a major travel hub and will have many options you can consider.

There are two (2) international airports in Paris. Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) is Paris’s main international airport. It is the largest of the airports in Paris and serves more international airlines. Paris Orly Airport (ORY) is a little closer to the city and is generally less crowded. Most travellers will likely arrive at CDG. There are multiple public transport options available to reach central Paris from the airport. 

Accommodation

The Eiffel Tower in Paris

Paris has over 1,500 hotels so there are plenty of options available. However, Team Canada fans should plan well in advance as it is anticipated that the demand will be very high.  

Another option to consider is Airbnb, a company operating an online marketplace for short and long-term homestays and experiences. In 2019 Airbnb became a Worldwide Partner of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC).
