May 16, 2022

Singapore Airlines has extended its role as title sponsor of the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix for three more years, continuing with this year’s race.

Having not been held for the past two years, the Singapore Grand Prix will return to the Marina Bay Street Circuit, set against the spectacular backdrop of the city’s night-time skyline, from 30th September to 2nd October 2022.

Welcoming the sponsorship, Brandon Snow, Formula 1’s Managing Director of Commercial, commented “we are pleased that Singapore Airlines will continue to be the title sponsor of the Singapore Grand Prix for another three years.

“The Singapore Grand Prix is the original F1 night race, an iconic Formula 1 event loved by fans and drivers, and it returns to the calendar after two years away. This year’s race will see further use of renewable energy and sustainable materials, and the commitments from Singapore Airlines towards sustainable aviation fuels reflect the continued alignment between all partners and Formula 1 in reducing environmental impact.”

Lee Lik Hsin, SIA’s Executive Vice President - Commercial, added “this year’s highly anticipated Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix 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.

“The race will be warmly welcomed by Singapore residents and visitors alike, and will enhance our reputation as a global city. SIA’s extension of its title sponsorship signals our continued support for both tourism and sports, complements the expansion of our global network, and will bolster Singapore’s recovery as a key international air hub.”

SIA first signed as the title sponsor in 2014 for four years, and subsequently extended it in 2018 and 2020 for two years respectively.
