Salamanca, 29 November 2016.- Global Exchange, the multinational company specialising in currency exchange services at international airports and other major tourist sites, keeps investing in Colombia by opening three new branches at Olaya Herrera International Airport in Medellín and Ernesto Costissoz in Barranquilla.

Global Exchange opens two new branches at Ernesto Costissoz airport, one of the busiest ones in the country. This air hub is in a strategic point between North and South America and in a popular location of the country—Barranquilla.
