Michael Grimme, senior vice president, sales and marketing, airBaltic, explained: “airBaltic.com is a travel megastore offering everything from flights, to hotel bookings, insurance, sunglasses for your beach holiday, and even roses onboard.

“Selecting Sixt as our preferred partner was a natural choice as it offers our customers a reliable car rental service in any of airBaltic’s 60 destinations in Europe, Middle East, Russia and the CIS.”

To celebrate the new partnership between airBaltic and Sixt, members of BalticMiles coalition loyalty programme will earn double points for each rental anywhere in the world.

Arnis Jaudzems, Sixt general manager, Baltic, added: “Teaming up with airBaltic is an important step ahead for improving customer convenience.
