The successful application of this prime retail setting sees the Company open its 4th branch this year and 35th branch in total.
Thanks to its high traffic location, the branch will serve the needs of the country’s residents – local and expatriates alike – traveling out of the country, as well as incoming holiday and business travellers.
To ensure that all patrons are able to take advantage of BFC’s services, the branch will be open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
The inauguration of this latest branch, further affirms the Company’s desire to grow its branch network supporting its local expansion plan which was announced in June of this year along with its plan to increase its global reach.
It is clear that BFC’s promise to continue to support the Kingdom’s 2030 vision, by playing an integral role in helping to build the country’s economy and providing job opportunities, all the while aiming to provide its customers with easy access to its service offering by opening branches in easy-to-get-to, key locations, is at the forefront of the Company’s mind. Over the last 12 months, BFC has opened 6 branches, creating jobs for more than 25 people.
Commenting on the establishment of its 35th branch, BFC General Manager, Mr. Errol Fonseca, said, “This latest branch located on the Departures level of the Airport, marks our 3rd branch to be opened at Bahrain International Airport, and will allow us to better serve the large number of passengers travelling to and from Bahrain for work and pleasure. Customers that require more ‘unusual’ currencies or large sums of their required currency, will also be able to book their currency in advance online and pick it up on their way through – ensuring a swift and easy transit.”
The new branch will provide customers with a comprehensive suite of remittance and foreign exchange services that BFC has become known for and will hold a stock of over 40 currencies, ensuring that passengers who are travelling on business or vacation, are able to easily obtain the currencies they require.
In addition to the FX services, travellers will also be able to take advantage of BFC’s remittance services and send money to their home destination in advance of their arrival using the Ezremit credit to account or cash pick services, allowing them to travel without the worry of carrying large sums of cash on them.
BFC now also accept cash payments for Citi Bank and American Express credit cards and loans across its 35 outlet branch network.
