Continuing to build upon its already favourable foreign exchange offering, Dubai Airports has extended its partnership with Travelex, a global currency exchange network. The extension that will cover an additional five years will include the opening of three additional outlets.
The first of the new outlets will be located in the heart of Dubai World Central (DWC).
Maureen Bannerman, VP Concession Revenue at Dubai Airports said; “Travelex is the world’s largest currency exchange network, so a great partner for the world’s busiest international airport.
“Dubai Airports welcomes flights from over 240 destinations around the world and our cosmopolitan customers need a foreign exchange outlet they are confident will be able to serve them with the currency they require, in a friendly manner and in a language they understand.”
Travelex has reported that Dubai International is home to two of its top performing stores in the world. The airport also boasts the highest growth amongst the company’s top five airports.
The newly announced outlets will join the Travelex’s existing 10 stores that are utilised by passengers at Dubai International to change their currencies and manage remittance transactions. The outlets also include ATM access for customer convenience.
Tom Fane, managing director of Travelex Middle East & Turkey said; “We are pleased to be able to continue working with the Dubai Airports and to have the opportunity to expand our business as passenger numbers increase.”
He added: “Two of our best performing stores in the world are in DXB which means this partnership is incredibly important, not only from a commercial perspective but also because of our combined vision to enhance the experience of our customers.”
