The nose of the special charter aircraft will be painted gold, and the plane itself will have the flight number BA2016.
The people participating in the contest has to choose from one of four names officials have already selected. The four shortlisted names are Gold Force One, Golden Hauls, Mission Accomplished or VictoRIOus.
The shortlisted names were submitted by Team GB and Paralympics GB athletes and BA staff.
The winning name along with the name will be revealed by British Airways on 16th August.
Alex Cruz, chairman and CEO of British Airways, said that, the names capture the unique British sense of humour, yet recognise the great pride they have for our sporting heroes.
This isn’t the first time British Airways has named its plane for a big sporting event. During the 2008 Beijing Olympics, BA had named the flight carrying the Olympians, Pride.
