Bahrain Air in key deal with BFC
Manama, July 8, 2011
Bahrain Air, the Kingdom's premium airline, has signed an agreement with Bahrain Financing Company (BFC) to allow customers to pay for their flights at any of BFC's 25 branches across the kingdom.
When booking through the call centre, customers can choose to pay cash and then visit any BFC outlet within 24 hours, presenting their reference number and last name, to complete the transaction and pick up their tickets.
"Being the kingdom's oldest and the most trusted money transfer company, we are constantly looking to provide enhanced facilities and diversified services for our customers," said BFC head of group marketing James Williamson.
"We are confident that the mutually beneficial agreement with Bahrain Air will give an added benefit to our customers," he added.
"Our key objective with this affiliation is to provide greater and easier access to more customers, some who like to pay cash rather than online using credit cards, " said Bahrain Air business development manager Abdulla Al Hamer.
"This deal with BFC expands our payment channels and ensures Bahrain Air is even more accessible to our customers here," he added.
BFC and Bahrain Air are also exploring opportunities that will provide additional value-added services for customers in the future.-TradeArabia News Service
