Publicly listed lender Bank Bukopin, in cooperation with Visa Worldwide Indonesia, launched on Tuesday a premium credit card to strengthen its credit card positioning in the domestic market.

Bank Bukopin president director Glen Glenardi told reporters before the card launching that the introduction of the Bukopin Infinite Card was expected to help increase the bank’s credit card holders to 1.35 million by the end of this year, up from over 1 million last December.

As the card issuance was managed by Visa as principle, holders would have various facilities, such as Visa’s concierge program to book hotel rooms and purchase flight tickets, as well as insurance coverage for travel accidents and travel inconveniences, he said.
