In these 5-cities the company has received mandates for 3-years at three and 5-years at two airports respectively. With these additions, Weizmann Forex has significantly increased its presence in India’s most demand dense and fastest growing airports by now operating 18 airport forex counters across the country.

The company is committed to delivering best-in-class services and products at competitive rates. These counters will provide in-bound and out-bound passengers with Weizmann Forex’s entire range of diversified offerings including Foreign Currency Notes, Prepaid Foreign Currency Cards, and Travellers’ Cheques.
Weizmann Forex has designed its airport counters to be technologically advanced and aesthetically pleasing, blending in with the architecture of the airport terminal buildings while also establishing distinct visibility for the Weizmann Forex brand.
