Kochi: Thomas Cook (India), a leading integrated travel and travel related financial services company, has inaugurated its new foreign exchange Export Centre at Cochin International Airport, Kerala. The Export Centre was inaugurated by V J Kurian IAS, Managing Director of Cochin International Airport Ltd.
The Export Centre, located at the Cargo Handling Agents Building, will provide Thomas Cook (India) a logistical edge in its key market of South India (Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh & Tamil Nadu) by enabling consolidation and shipping of foreign currencies in and out of the country, based on market requirements. Given its significant NRI population, South India plays a significant role in the Indian Foreign Exchange market, and the launch of this Export Centre is a reiteration of Thomas Cook India’s strategy of focusing on prime markets.
Madhavan Menon, Managing Director of Thomas Cook (India) said, “In addition to our existing export centres in Mumbai & Delhi, the new Foreign Exchange Export Centre in Kochi, Kerala’s commercial capital, gives us impactful advantage in consolidating our currency business via a viable new gateway- effective in management of costs and turnaround time.
He added, “Kochi’s location gives Thomas Cook India a valuable centre to serve the requirements of our significant South India market – both in terms of price as well as ensuring service efficiencies, especially during periods of high demand.”
