On a journey together: Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN and Edelweiss extend partnership

Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN is flying high on and off the track as it extends its successful partnership with Edelweiss, Switzerland’s leading leisure travel airline. The deal will see Edelweiss continue in its role as Official Airline Partner as it flies the team around the world for the 2022 season.

Zurich Airport-based Edelweiss flies to 82 destinations in 38 countries around the world, including in Europe, Africa, Asia, the Americas and the Caribbean.

An affiliate of the Lufthansa Group, Edelweiss is the sister carrier of SWISS International Air Lines.

Edelweiss branding will be visible on the floorline of the C42 cars of Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu throughout the season.
