Salamanca, 22 November 2018.- Global Exchange, the Spanish multinational specialised in the provision of currency exchange services at international airports and other major tourist destinations, has been the successful bidder of the contract for the currency exchange service at the V.C. Bird International Airport, located in the capital of Antigua and Barbuda, for the coming 5 years.
In the words of Isidoro J. Alanís, President of Global Exchange: “The opening of these new branches in Antigua and Barbuda is very important for our expansion strategy, not only because it is an important international airport, but also because this region of the Caribbean has heavy maritime traffic. Big cruises use the Saint John port as a stop in the route, and this can mean great possibilities for the future”.
The airport located in Saint John, capital and main island of Antigua and Barbuda, was completely renovated in 2015 and it has been defined as “the most modern of the Caribbean airports”. It has the capacity to manage up to a million and a half passengers, coming from direct flights from all the Caribbean area, from the south of the United States (Miami, Charlotte or Atlanta, among others) and even from Europe. This opening widens the range of services available to the passengers by offering Global Exchange’s currency exchange service since last 15th November.
For Global Exchange, this opening means not only a step further in its international expansion plan, but also the consolidation of their leadership in the Latin American and Caribbean area, with Antigua and Barbuda being their 13th subsidiary in the region and their 22nd subsidiary worldwide.
