"Olympic Airways" is the fourth and last single from the album Antidotes by Foals. It is their seventh single in total to date. It was released as a digital download, CD and vinyl on 6 October 2008.

Yannis Philippakis stated that the lyrics are about or at least in connection with London Heathrow Airport. In an interview with NME, Philippakis stated that the song was about feelings of isolation, just wanting to be at home, and not wanting to go outside.

The video was directed by Dave Ma and features friends, crude oil, balloons and an octopus.

"Olympic Airways" was featured on the FIFA 09 soundtrack. It was the only single from Antidotes that did not chart.
