NARITA, Chiba Pref. (Kyodo) Narita International Airport Corp. said Thursday that one of its subsidiaries is scheduled to begin offering foreign exchange services at Narita airport in November, the first nonbank company to provide services of this kind at Japan’s main gateway.

Greenport Agency Co. will open money exchange counters at the international airport’s two terminals, dealing in 17 different currencies, according to the operator of the international airport.

In 1998, Japan revised its foreign exchange law to allow nonbank firms to handle foreign currency exchange.

Greenport will also deal in traveler’s checks in seven currencies, including the U.S. dollar and the euro, the parent company said.
