By: Emelia Essumanba- Josiah


Access Bank has unveiled its newest branch at the Cargo Centre village in Airport City increasing its business office locations to forty-seven. 

The ultra- modern branch, according to a press statement is said to be a strategic move to bring world-class banking to its customers and cater for the specialised needs of the business community within the Airport City enclave.

Mr. Dolapo Ogundimu, Managing Director said that the bank’s presence within the cargo centre enclave demonstrates its unflinching commitment to play a meaningful role in Ghana’s development. 

“We see ourselves as major contributors and are supporting businesses to access banking services without having to move long distances”, he added. 

Accordingly, he added that the Bank will further deepen its financial inclusion agenda and play a facilitating role for cargo and passenger handling payments at one of the largest cargo hub in West Africa. 

The new branch is expected to provide timely financial services for customers and individuals working in and around the mini-commercial city of Airport as well as agencies and businesses including the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Customs Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS), cargo airlines, aviation handling services companies and other related businesses.

Mr. Dolapo Ogundimu confirmed that the Cargo Centre branch offers the Bank’s full range of personal and business banking products including flexible savings and current account options, bills payment services, e-banking, card services as well as domestic and international money transfer through Western Union, Moneygram, RIA and Cross border Money Transfer.

Access Bank’s presence at the new Cargo Centre village has been a result of spearheading a public-private partnership with the Ghana Airport Cargo Centre Limited (GACC), a partnership between Air Ghana Limited (AGL) and Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL), and Swissport.

Since launching its banking operations in Ghana in 2009, Access Bank has increased its presence to cater for its growing market share, especially in retail banking, as well as to reduce the number of unbanked and underserved segments of the market.
