SIA stays on board as Singapore F1 title sponsor till 2019
SINGAPORE Airlines (SIA) announced on Thursday it will extend its title sponsorship of Singapore's Formula 1 grand prix for two more years until 2019.
The national carrier first signed on as title sponsor in 2014 for two years and extended it for the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
SIA's chief executive Goh Choon Phong said that Singapore's night race is the "highlight of Singapore's sporting calendar" and that SIA was "thrilled to continue" as title sponsor.
"We look forward to showcasing this event to the world and enhancing both tourism and sports for the benefit of Singaporeans and visitors alike," he said.
Singapore GP chairman Teo Hock Seng said that he was delighted to have SIA as a partner again, describing it as a key component to the success of the only night race on the Formula 1 calendar.
"As we embark on the next chapter with Formula 1, we look forward to harnessing our combined reach and brand recognition" to showcase what Singapore has to offer, Mr Teo said.
This year's Singapore grand prix returns to the Marina Bay Street Circuit from Sept 14 to 16.
