FNB Private Clients can now experience a place where the journey matters as much as the destination: Nthula Lounge. The modern day traveler can now enjoy the comfortably serene environment of the executive lounge while waiting to board their next flight out of Sir Seretse Khama International Airport (SSKIA). Nthula Lounge amenities tie into a variety of travel based value-adds that the Bank offers its clients.
The partnership is based upon FNB recognising that banking has become more than just a business; it is a lifestyle. Amongst some of the benefits of the FNB Private Client debit and credit card are value-added services such as high end travel, dining and shopping privileges. In addition, Private Clients can also enjoy free access to SLOW Lounge at OR Tambo International Airport and over 650 other international departure lounges worldwide, and purchase protection of up to P182 000 covering against loss or damaged goods within 90 days of purchase. Above this, access to Nthula Lounge strives to add a greater level of convenience for customers during travel.
Access to the Nthula Lounge is free for all FNB Private Clients. However, walk-in clients (FNB and non-FNB) are also welcome to utilise the Lounge for a minimum of two hours at a reasonable cost. FNB Private Clients also enjoy the privilege of inviting one guest per visit. Nthula Lounge boasts such amenities as luxurious seating with massage chairs, free access to Wi-Fi, printing and faxing facilities, and private bathrooms, to name a few. With a seating capacity of 25, Nthula is open every day from 06:00 to 21:00, when the last flight of the day leaves the airport.
“We are excited about our affiliation with Nthula Lounge and look forward to offering our customers access to the Lounge. We are continuously looking for ways to make our customers’ lives just a little easier, making convenience our focus. From online banking, cellphone banking, the FNB Banking App, ATM advance and now Nthula Lounge, we understand that there are more things in life that one should be spending their valuable time on. Through Nthula Lounge, we believe travel will be an even more enjoyable experience for our customers,” said FNBB Director of Wealth, Bongani Khulu.
“Nthula Lounge offers travelers an opportunity to be able to either relax, or attend to business while in transit. We have seen an increase in patrons looking to make use of the facility. Nthula Lounge is ideal for business people who are always on the go, as it offers the convenience and privacy for one to continue working away from the office,” said Thelma Maswikiti of Nthula Lounge.
