Usually travellers could take out cash and exchange currency at the airport ahead of trips abroad. These services were due to return in early May, but are still not available due to the closure of the companies who operated the machines.

In a response to a customer who tweeted about the lack of cash facilites, Glasgow Airport staff wrote: "Hello, we have contracted a new business partner for managing the replenishment of cash machines at the airport. We sincerely hope that their software upgrades and recruitment of new staff is in place early May 2022".

A spokesperson for the airport confirmed that the companies they previously used had closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and that they are speaking with other companies to resume the services. It is hoped they’ll return soon.
