Fort Lauderdale, FL (November 22, 2022) – SIXT USA, one of the world’s leading premium providers of mobility, will open its newest location in Eagle County Regional Airport in Vail, Colorado on November 23, providing more travelers with premium rental options in yet another major tourism market. This announcement follows a multitude of branch openings across the United States in the past year including Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Nashville International Airport, and Kauai Lihue International Airport, continuing to grow the brand’s footprint nationwide.
Vail averages more than 1.6 million visits annually with 2021 being one of the busiest years on record, according to Eagle County Regional Airport. The city is one of the most well-renowned skiing destinations in the United States and the opening of the SIXT Vail branch will give winter travelers the opportunity to rent the best-in-class transportation when they head to the mountains. The branch opening is ideally timed with most ski resorts across Colorado officially opening their doors in early November.
“We are excited to continue our US expansion by adding Vail to our growing network” said Tom Kennedy, President and Chief Executive Officer at SIXT USA. “Vail has long been one of the most popular skiing destinations in the United States, and we are looking forward to offering our premium product and rental services to the thousands of skiers and vacationers alike that choose to travel through Eagle County Regional Airport.”
SIXT USA has continued to expand operations with the aim to bring a premium product and customer service to travelers throughout the country. Customers are encouraged to download the SIXT app and use the new Mobile Checkout service which is now available in over 30 airport locations.
