Formula E has announced that Qatar Airways has become the official airline partner for the upcoming New York City race and the series itself, as well as taking title sponsorship for the Paris ePrix.
The upcoming Formula E round in New York on July 15-16 has secured Qatar Airways as a title sponsor, as announced by the series on Wednesday.
Formula E will grace the streets of Red Hook, Brooklyn this summer as the penultimate round of the all-electric series’ third season, acting as a landmark motorsport event for New York.
The race will see Qatar Airways act as its official airline partner, a position it will also adopt for the Paris round on May 20, which will officially be known as the Qatar Airways Paris ePrix.
“It’s fantastic news that Qatar Airways is joining the electric street racing series as race title partner of Paris and Official Airline Partner for two of the flagship events on the Formula E calendar in Paris and New York,” Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag said.
“This partnership continues to show the growth of the series on a global scale; we are working closely with distinguished companies in a variety of industries and fields all over the world.
“I’m delighted to add Qatar Airways to the growing list of partners joining Formula E, demonstrating arguably the best partnership portfolio of any sporting platform.”
