BPI says services to 'normalize' on Friday

MANILA - Bank of the Philippine Islands said Friday it expected services to "normalize" within the day, as it reeled from a two-day disruption that inconvenienced customers.

Electronic channels have been hit with high traffic volumes since being restored at 9 a.m. on Thursday, which may lead to "intermittent difficulties," the bank said in a statement.

"We expect our services to normalize as the day progresses, and thank you for your patience and understanding," the bank said.

The bank said ATM and over-the-counter transactions were available.

Banks expect high transaction volumes on Friday due to the long weekend. Monday is a public holiday for Independence Day.
