ChangeGroup signs deal to operate foreign exchange services at Newcastle International Airport

ChangeGroup, a leading provider of foreign currency and financial services around the world, has secured a contract to offer a range of currency exchange services at Newcastle International Airport.

The deal comes as the next stage in the company’s ambitious expansion plans for its UK business, and follows the additions of Gatwick Airport, London Stansted Airport, London Luton Airport, East Midlands Airport and St Pancras International Railway Station to its network over the past year.

ChangeGroup will open two branches at the international hub, one in the departure lounge and one in arrivals alongside six multi-currency ATMs.

These branches will provide travellers with a range of premium services, including fast travel cash in all major currencies and international bank transfers.

As ever, the friendly, knowledgeable and skilled sales consultants that ChangeGroup prides itself on will be offering the highest level of customer service and assisting travellers with any enquiries.

Working closely with Newcastle International Airport to ensure strong cohesion on the overall design of the terminal, ChangeGroup has made significant investment into the ambience of the branches.

The eye-catching and engaging look has been crafted to enhance travellers’ airport experience and ensure they are able to easily identify the branches.

Top-of-the-range LED displays ensure messaging is clear, captivating, and up-to-the-minute.

Newcastle International Airport is expected to welcome 4.7 million passengers in 2023, with a choice of over 80 direct destinations plus convenient one-stop connections to destinations across the globe via strategic hubs including Amsterdam, London and Dubai.

Sacha Zackariya, CEO and Co-Founder of ChangeGroup International, said: “Newcastle International Airport is an excellent addition to our network and a very exciting location for us to be operating in.

“By securing another significant UK airport we have further established ourselves as the operator of choice for major landlords across the country.

“We’ve developed a fantastic partnership with Newcastle International Airport and are beyond confident that the seamless integration of our services will enrich travellers’ experience at the airport.”

Dean Ward, Director of Commercial at Newcastle International Airport, said: “We are delighted to welcome ChangeGroup and to be part of their ambitious UK growth strategy.

“In recent months we have worked closely with the team to create two fantastic looking branches in convenient locations and look forward to welcoming customers this summer.

“The investment from ChangeGroup is one of many exciting new developments planned across the airport in the next 12 months as we continue to improve our commercial offering.”
