Bank Muscat rewards customers with exclusive airport lounge access

MUSCAT: Bank Muscat, the flagship financial services provider in the Sultanate, in step with its vision ‘To serve you better, everyday’ and commitment to partnership in offering value-added service benefiting customers, has evoked strong response to Muscat International Airport lounge access facilitated to the bank’s cardholders.
The exclusive lounge access follows an agreement signed by the bank with TAV Prime Class operating the premier lounge at Muscat International Airport. The deal offers free lounge access to Premier banking customers, including Private, asalah and al jawhar customers. Free access is applicable for Infinite debit and credit cards. For al jawhar, only credit cardholders have free access.
Free access is also available for Master Card Platinum, Corporate Signature and Standard, najahi Plus. All other Bank Muscat cardholders are charged on a discounted rate of RO 14 instead of RO 20.
Bank Muscat is making all efforts to establish electronic payment as a business model. The initiative is aimed at complementing government efforts in making e-payment the preferred mode of payment and motivating a change in consumer behaviour that makes ‘payment by cards’ both a habit and preference in view of convenience and security.
The Prime Class Muscat lounge offers ultimate comfort with 24/7 facilities, including game zone, cinema, private suites, family rooms, prayer area, meeting rooms, female and male hair dresser, tailor, laundry, kid’s play rooms, shower facilities, restrooms, spa, relaxing zone, baggage storage and more. Guests can avail open buffet of traditional and international cuisine options of fresh and tasty complimentary snacks in privileged atmosphere.
Reflecting the commitment to providing ‘best in class’ service, Bank Muscat continues to invest in cutting edge IT infrastructure, latest Point of Sale (PoS) terminals and competent human resources available in the payments industry. It is this ‘dedication’ and ‘commitment to service’ that has made Bank Muscat the preferred electronic payment service provider to the nation.
Bank Muscat commenced card acquiring operations in 2002 and since then has crossed many milestones to become the largest acquirer and issuer of cards in Oman. As the leading electronic payment service provider in Oman, Bank Muscat merchant outlet network has grown to over 10,000 with nearly 18,000 PoS terminals deployed across the country to support e-payment and continues to expand rapidly.
