A minimum of 12 ATMs will be installed in the airport. They can be used to withdraw currencies most commonly exchanged in Finland, such as US dollars, British pounds, Swedish krona, Danish krone as well as Euros.
Helsinki Airport will receive one of ChangeGroup’s first ATM Networks with multi currency capability.
- The currency exchange machines will help to expand the service range: passengers can choose whether to exchange currency at the service outlet or use a self-service machine. We want to provide options so everyone can choose their preferred way to do things. With the new self-service machines, customers can exchange currency at the airport 24/7, even during the quieter periods, says Jukka Isomäki, Vice President at Finavia.
Currency exchange ATMs can also be used as cash withdrawal ATMs.
ChangeGroup is a leading currency exchange service provider, serving international traveller worldwide with over a hundred branches in 12 countries. The company is expanding its operations particularly in European and North American airports.

We are happy to be able to expand our services providing foreign currency and euro ATMs in addition to our existing foreign currency bureaus to a growing number of passengers, says Paul Meehan, Director of ChangeGroup ATMs.
