TURKEY. Global Exchange has been awarded a seven-year foreign exchange contract at Antalya International Airport.

The company will open four branches at Turkey’s second-busiest airport, as part of a €1 million investment.

Two outlets opened at the end of December in Terminal 2 international arrivals and the other two will open in Terminal 1 during the first semester of 2018. The openings will create 55 new jobs, according to Global Exchange.

Global Exchange President Isidoro J. Alanís said: “We’re in constant growth to provide services to travellers from all over the world. The opening of branches in Turkey consolidates our expansion strategy in Europe and Asia, as it is an important transportation hub between the two continents.”

Over the last few years Global Exchange has stepped up its international expansion, with openings in the Middle East, Asia and Oceania. In 2016, the company was named as Sydney Airport’s foreign exchange partner and in 2017 it won the foreign exchange concession at Hong Kong International Airport.

Global Exchange is now present in 21 countries.
