Bahrain Financing opens new airport branch
Manama, August 22, 2013
Bahrain Financing Company (BFC), the kingdom's oldest money transfer and foreign exchange company, has announced the launch of its 35th branch, located on the departures level prior to check-in at Bahrain International Airport.
The successful application of this prime retail setting sees the company open its fourth branch this year, reported the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
Thanks to its high traffic location, the branch will serve the needs of the country's residents - local and expatriates alike - travelling 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 seven 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 Economic Vision 2030 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 is at the forefront of the company's mind.
Over the last 12 months, BFC has opened six branches, creating jobs for more than 25 people.
"This latest branch located on the departures level, marks our third 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," said BFC general manager Errol Fonseca.
"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," he added.
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. – TradeArabia News Service
