Western Union has partnered with financial services provider AirPak to launch its digital money transfer services in Central American countries.

The agreement will allow people in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua to transfer funds internationally through westernunion.com.

Currently, Western Union digital money transfer services are available in more than 60 countries and territories, where customers can send funds to bank accounts in more than 100 countries.

The online services also allow transfer to more than 500,000 Agent locations across more than 200 countries and territories.

In Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, the company operates more than 2,500 retail Agent locations.

Western Union general manager for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean Rodrigo Garcia Estebarena said: “Western Union has dramatically transformed its digital offering, empowering customers to move money the way they choose, online and offline.

“We are pleased to expand Western Union’s global digital network to Central America and provide customers more choice.”

AirPak president Piero Coen said: “At AirPak we are constantly seeking new ways to deliver customer-focused solutions that allow convenient access to financial services through different formats.

“We have tapped into the expertise of Western Union’s global leadership to give our customers choice and take their experience to a new height.”

Last month, Western Union partnered with South Korean mobile-first bank kakaobank to introduce its digital money transfer service in the country.
