ICE sets down in Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in major FX deal

ICE – International Currency Exchange, the global foreign exchange and prepaid currency card provider, has boosted its presence in North America with a major contract, as the only foreign exchange provider at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. ICE will take over currency exchange operations at the airport from Travelex.

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport serves 71 non-stop domestic destinations in the US and 19 international cities, with over 34 million passengers passing through the airport a year.  

From April 2014, ICE will have 4 branches at Sea-Tac Airport serving international travellers. The deal complements ICE’s existing network of branches and corporate locations in Los Angeles where it has operated for 30 years and now runs 13 branches.  Also, with Seattle close to the Canadian border, the new airport deal will support ICE’s 13 year presence in Vancouver, where it currently operates 11 foreign exchange branches.  ICE now has 150 currency exchange outlets in North America, at 70 locations, in 24 airports and over 400 branches globally.  

“The Port of Seattle welcomes ICE to our award-winning dining and retail program,” said Mark Reis, Managing Director of Sea-Tac Airport. “Our goal is to provide an exceptional customer experience and the services of ICE will create another opportunity to meet the needs of the traveling public.”  

Koko Sarkari, COO of ICE adds: “Sea-Tac Airport is our 69th Airport on a global basis. We are delighted to have been awarded this concession, as it underlines our commitment to global growth, ensuring ICE is where our customers need us to be at all key travel hubs around the world.  To be selected for this highly coveted contract is testament to our unswerving focus on delivering a friendly, transparent and accessible foreign exchange service to suit the pockets of travellers worldwide.”
