Foreign currency provider ChangeGroup has secured a contract to offer a range of currency exchange services at Newcastle International Airport.

ChangeGroup will open two branches at Newcastle, one in the departure lounge and one in arrivals alongside six multi-currency ATMs. The branches will provide travellers with a range of premium services, including fast travel cash in all major currencies and international bank transfers. The deal comes as the next stage in the company’s ambitious expansion plans for its UK business, and follows the additions of Gatwick, Stansted, Luton and East Midlands airports over the past year.

ChangeGroup at Newcastle Airport

The new branches have been designed to be easily identifiable

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, it said. The branch’s look has been designed to ensure they are easy to identify. LED displays ensure messaging is clear and up-to-the-minute.

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.”
