Posted 19 June 2017 · Add Comment

First National Bank (FNB) of South Africa has partnered with National Aviation Services (NAS) to operate a new departure lounge at the Maputo International Airport for the next five years. The agreement also includes an additional five year renewal option.

In 2016, FNB won a bid to manage this new lounge that will cater to its Platinum card customers as well as other airline and corporate clients. The 250 square meter lounge located in departures can host 80 passengers and is equipped with a comfortable dining area, fully equipped business center, smoking room and a children’s play area.

Johan Maree, CEO, FNB MOÇAMBIQUE, said: “We are committed to best serve our customers and strive to offer exponential helpfulness to our customers. The launch of this new lounge is a milestone for FNB, as we drive efforts to provide seamless banking services to our consumers and demonstrate our appreciation to our loyal clients. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do and our drive to innovate this new product is a brilliant example of how we can help transform their lives and offer them more convenience. The FNB lounge is not just another lounge, but rather designed to give all comfort and services that FNB platinum customers deserve away from home.”
