Munich/Berlin, 7 March 2014 – Sixt, one of Europe’s leading mobility providers, and Germanwings, Germany’s biggest low-cost airline, are set to continue their successful partnership. As Germanwings’ car rental partner, Sixt offers passengers a comprehensive mobility service as part of this alliance. Right after booking their flights online, passengers can reserve Sixt rental vehicles on the Germanwings website www.germanwings.com. Customers can look forward to the Sixt vehicle of their choice at any Germanwings destination, before or after the flight. Sixt and Germanwings have been working together for their customers’ benefit since 2002.
Members of the Boomerang Club, which is the Germanwings frequent flyer scheme, are awarded 500 miles every time they rent from Sixt Rent a Car, and 1000 miles if they use the Sixt Limousine Service. Land double the points with a Germanwings credit card: customers who pay with the airline’s credit card receive 1000 miles every time they rent a Sixt vehicle.
"We are very happy to be continuing our fruitful partnership with Germanwings. It is about to become even more significant, since the well-known airline will soon be flying Lufthansa’s flights within Europe that don’t involve the hubs at Munich or Frankfurt, which means that by 2015, according to their own estimates, they will probably be carrying three times more passengers than they have been. For us that means we can offer many more Germanwings passengers all the services Sixt has to offer. Our teams are on standby at our many destinations, and are looking forward to receiving the extra passengers."
