Saudi Arabia’s Madinah airport ‘lacks bank services’
The airport is usually very crowded because it is an entrance for pilgrims to the Prophet’s Mosque and the Grand Mosque
Travelers through Prince Muhammad Bin Abdulaziz International Airport complained about the lack of banking services at the airport, Al-Madina reported.
Mustafa Al-Qabali, a citizen, said the airport is usually very crowded because it is an entrance for pilgrims to the Prophet’s Mosque and the Grand Mosque.
He said: “It is not fully equipped with the services and facilities available at other international airports in the Kingdom.
“There are only two ATMs and no currency exchange machines.” He added there are no booths allowing people to access the online facilities of the Ministry of Interior.
“The airport is wonderful and fully functional but bank services are very important for travelers. “A month has already passed since the banks were ordered to open branches at the airport. How long will it take them to do so?”
The General Authority of Civil Aviation’s communications and marketing head Assistant Wael Al-Sarhan said the authority has taken the complaints into consideration.
“The terminals at the airport are fairly new and the implementation phase is still ongoing. “There will be banks alongside other commercial outlets at the terminals soon.
There will also be a fingerprinting booth for visitors to access the Ministry of Interior’s ‘Absher’ online portal there as well.”
