Westpac and the locally-owned HFC Bank have entered into an agreement to provide banking and financial services at the Nadi International Airport.

This follows the parties successfully winning the tender for foreign exchange and retail concession at Nadi International Airport including the construction, installation and operation of the facilities.

The Westpac Nadi International branch officially opens its doors for business from Monday November 16.

Westpac had initially submitted the tender in partnership with the HFC Bank.

HFC Bank is co-financing the provision of a world-class banking experience for customers at the busy airport which is undergoing major refurbishments.

Over $1.2 million has been invested collectively by both banks in the branch.

Westpac’s retail presence at the airport will be Westpac-branded. It will operate on the Westpac system and platforms and will be managed by the bank’s employees.

Westpac Fiji general manager Adrian Hughes said: “It is terrific to have HFC Bank’s support as we provide passengers arriving to Nadi International Airport with access to an internationally-recognisable brand to meet their banking and foreign exchange needs.

“We’re also pleased that consumers will have the comfort of Westpac’s worldwide acceptance of international cards including China Union Pay.”

 

Partnership

This is the second collaboration that HFC Bank and Westpac have done in less than a year.

HFC Bank chief executive Isikeli Tikoduadua said: “We are optimistic that our continued partnership will enhance banking and financial services in Fiji and both our customers.”

He added this partnership and investment is a benefit for all.

“This collaboration not only blends the local and international banks, but for us at HFC Bank, it provides returns to our shareholders, who are the people of Fiji,” he said.
