Fort Lauderdale, FL (April 19, 2022) – SIXT, one of the leading global mobility providers, is continuing its rapid expansion across the US and announces the opening of new branches in Charlotte and Baltimore, offering customers more rental choices on the East Coast.
Last week, the premium mobility provider opened its Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) location, the second largest hub for American Airlines, and recently celebrated the opening of its Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) branch in March 2022. BWI was recently named the best in the world for passenger satisfaction, serving up to 25 million passengers annually, according to the Airport Council International Airport Service Quality survey. Expanding to major airport and business hubs like BWI and CLT, two of the top 30 rental car markets in the country, enables SIXT USA to further support its growing corporate customer base and strengthen the east coast network.
This follows the opening of three new locations across the country including Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG), Albuquerque International Sunport Airport (ABQ), and Portland International Airport (PDX) at the end of last year. In addition, SIXT USA invested in the Tampa market by doubling their footprint at Tampa International Airport (TPA). Since the beginning of 2022, SIXT can now be found at 28 of the top 30 airports in the US, providing increased support to traveling customers and the local communities.
“As travel continues to boom, we are growing SIXT USA’s presence across the East Coast to offer consumers premium rentals at affordable prices, at these major hubs,” said Michael Meissner, President and Chief Operating Officer at SIXT USA. “Charlotte and Baltimore have so much to offer, from their culinary scenes to the incredible festivals they host, and we’re thrilled to equip visitors with the best vehicles to enhance their experiences while exploring these destinations.”
SIXT USA has continued to expand operations with over 1,200 employees serving 100 rental locations in 22 states, including California, Florida, New York, Texas, Colorado, and Hawaii.
SIXT USA opened its first branch in 2011 and recently expanded its position as the fourth-largest car rental company in the US, the world’s largest car rental market with a market volume of more than USD 32 billion. In 2020, SIXT USA set the course for further growth by acquiring 10 strategically important airport stations and launching the car subscription service SIXT+.
With outstanding customer service, technical innovation, and affordable prices on world-class manufacturers, SIXT USA aims to make travelling exciting, easy, and more flexible than customers ever thought it could be. Customers are advised to book early and pay in advance via the SIXT website or app to secure the best rates for their premium rentals.
