Sixt’s downtown New York location

Sixt Rent-a-Car won court approval to take over ten airport locations from Advantage Rent a Car, which filed for bankruptcy in May, just a few days after industry giant Hertz entered bankruptcy proceedings.

The Munich-based company paid $16.1 million for the concessions.

A U.S. District of Delaware Bankruptcy Court judge approved Sixt’s acquisition of airport concessions at New York’s three major airport locations, LaGuardia, Kennedy, and Newark, as well as at Boston Logan International, Denver International, Daniel K. Inouye International, Houston Bush Intercontinental, Kahului International in Maui, McCarran International in Las Vegas, and Orlando International airports.

Advantage was founded in 1963 with a focus on renting vehicles to members of the military.

Founded near Munich in 1912, Sixt was the first car-rental agency in Munich and is the largest car rental company in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Israel. It is the fourth largest car rental agency in the United States, with over 50 U.S. locations including branches in Union Square in San Francisco and Chicago O’Hare as well as at Miami International, Seattle-Tacoma International, San Diego International, Tampa International airports, and in Battery Park in New York City.

Sixt, the second largest rental car company in Europe, first entered the U.S. market in 2011.
