Airport to get 3 forex counters this Diwali

The city airport authorities just made your international trip easier by ticking ‘get foreign currency’ off your to-do list. Authorities confirmed on Thursday that the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport will get three foreign currency exchange counters in its premises before Diwali. Sources said the contract for the services have been awarded to a Mumbai-based company that will set up the three counters within a month, well in time for your Diwali vacation.
While one counter will be set up near the arrival gate at the international terminal, a second counter will be at the departure gate and a third one will be inside the security-held area in the departure area. Centrum Corporation that was awarded the bid by the AAI has already the process of staff recruitment, related paperwork and kicked off construction of the counters.
Airport Director AK Sharma said, “This is an issue we have been working on for quite some time now and have successfully been able to find a solution. A contract has been awarded to a company that is already working on the setup.” The last foreign exchange counter at the airport closed in 2015. Since then, the Airport Authority of India (AAI) has floated at least three tenders inviting bids to set up these counters at the city airport but there had been no takers.
