Singapore Airlines has extended its sponsorship of the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix in the city for three more years, the national carrier said on Saturday.
The extension will start with this year’s race in October, the company said in a statement. In January, Singapore said it would host the event after a two-year hiatus because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Formula One “will be an important milestone for Singapore, marking the return of a major international sporting event to the city after a two-year disruption due to the pandemic,” Lee Lik Hsin, Singapore Airlines’ executive vice-president for commercial operations, said.
Singapore Airlines first signed as the title sponsor in 2014 for four years, and subsequently extended it in 2018 and 2020 for two years respectively.
