HOUSTON, Dec. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KeyBank customers have increased access to surcharge-free ATMs by way of 11 cash machines located throughout Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) and Burke Lakefront Airport. The ATMs are newly branded KeyBank through an agreement with Cardtronics, Inc. (NASDAQ:CATM), the world's largest retail ATM owner / operator and exclusive provider of ATM services to both airports. KeyBank operates under the auspices of KeyCorp (NYSE:KEY). With $95.4 billion in assets, KeyBank is one of the top 25 banks in the United States.

Ten of the KeyBank-branded ATMs are located in CLE's Concourses A, B and C; its Main Terminal and Ticketing areas; Baggage Claim; Food Court; Rental Car Facility; and Passenger Bridge to daily parking. The remaining KeyBank-branded ATM – also provided by Cardtronics – is at the Burke Lakefront Airport.

The agreement covering Cleveland-area airports is the second between KeyBank and Cardtronics. In 2014, KeyBank signed its first ATM branding agreement with Cardtronics, expanding surcharge-free ATM access for its customers by outfitting 25 Cardtronics-owned ATMs in Rite-Aid stores in New York State with the KeyBank brand.

KeyBank Cleveland Retail Sales Executive Matt Wyner said:

"As Cleveland's hometown bank, we are proud to offer ATMs as a way to welcome visitors to northeast Ohio. Through our partnership with Cardtronics, KeyBank clients now have easy access to surcharge-free cash on the go."

Cardtronics President, North American Business Group, David Dove said:

"These 11 ATMs will make banking more convenient for KeyBank customers, particularly when they are traveling, and will further enhance KeyBank's name recognition with those visiting the Cleveland area."

All KeyBank-branded ATMs can be found using the Branch & ATM locator available at the bank's website.
