The airport is currently able to handle 28 million passengers, and served approximately 21 million people in 2018. The airport was formerly known as Jan Smuts Airport, and Johannesburg International Airport, but in 2006, its name was officially changed to O.R Tambo International Airport, in honour of Oliver Reginald Tambo, a past President of the African National Congress.

Vehicles from Sixt come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from the smaller Chevrolet Spark and Ford Fiesta to the large VW Kombi, seating up to nine passengers. Although the smaller vehicles from Sixt, similar to the VW Chico Golf and Fiat Grande Punto as well, seat up to four people, families may need a larger sized vehicle, as they don’t have much room for luggage. They are very popular choices for single drivers and couples, with less luggage to transport. Smaller vehicles also come with good rental prices, and are ideal for driving in the city.

Many customers at Sixt enjoy a vehicle with an automatic transmission, and these types of vehicles are similar to the Nissan Tiida and Ford Focus Auto, as well as the more elegant and stylish BMW 320i Auto. and Mercedes-Benz C180 Auto.

They are also ideal for business renters who require a more up-market vehicle for corporate functions.

Sixt, at O.R Tambo International Airport, aims to fulfill the rental needs of all their clients, and therefore offer a range of larger sized vehicles as well. The Opel Zafira seats up to six people, and is a great car for families who enjoy more interior space within their vehicles, while the VW Kombi can be classed as a ‘people carrier’, with room for nine passengers and a number of luggage items. Groups of travelers who would like to hire just one vehicle often choose one of Sixt’s MPV vehicles.

All vehicles at Sixt’s Johannesburg Airport rental location can be hired by anyone 21 years of age or older.
