Foreign exchange brand Travelex has launched a full range of bureaux and ATM services at London/ Stansted Airport.
London Stansted is the UK’s fourth largest airport, carrying more than 28 million passengers in 2019. The launch means Travelex now operates at all three Manchester Airports Group (MAG) airports, having recently re-won and started services at East Midlands airport in addition to existing facilities at Manchester.
Travelex initially launched 17 ATMs at Stansted, before recently opening its first two manned stores. Its staff will provide customers with a full range of traditional foreign exchange services, including access to more than 50 currencies.
Customers will also be able to withdraw cash from Travelex ATMs and use a click and collect service, ordering their money in advance and collecting it from Travelex at the airport.
Travelex will, over the coming months, look to expand its Stansted footprint in several ways – including by broadening its range of ATM currencies and increasing its number of bureaux, with the bureaux growth potentially creating dozens of new and local sales and management jobs in the process.
Philip Barter, commercial director, Travelex UK and Africa, said, “With the travel and foreign exchange industries having faced a challenging pandemic period, our launch at London Stansted marks a significant step in the industry’s wider recovery.”
