Tripfez and Media Prima Digital have launched a new Umrah package booking feature on Raudhah app. Raudhah’s 250,000-plus existing users and Muslim travellers can now search for flights and hotels for Umrah travel according to multiple criteria, including date of travel and the number of travellers in their group. Online Travel Agents can also access the API connection, enabling them to access and digitally package Umrah travel more easily. “Raudhah app feature marks an exciting development in the Islamic travel and marketing space, with two dynamic Malaysian-headquartered companies working together to pioneer the digital distribution of Umrah packages, which until now, has been a traditional, non-digital business,” said Faeez Fadhlillah, Founder & CEO, Tripfez.” He further added, “Our collaboration with Media Prima Digital will not only make things easier for Muslim travellers, but also facilitate the future growth of the Umrah travel sector, catering to pent-up demand for digital Umrah solutions, which today is driven by tech-savvy Muslim Millennials. At the same time, we are giving third-parties access to the API connection, enabling them to access the direct feeds to create and sell Umrah packages more efficiently and effectively.” Raudhah- the brainchild of Media Prima Digital- has 14 features and is designed to cater to the religious needs of Muslims in Malaysia and around the world. Talking about the achievement, Rafiq Razali, CEO, Media Prima Digital, said, “We are thrilled to introduce the Umrah feature into the Raudhah app in this latest update. Performing Umrah is now much easier with the advancement in technology and we look forward to embracing it as we take a digital-first approach as an organisation,” said.

Muslim travellers will spend $157 billion by 2020, as revealed at the Arabian Travel Market 2018 and the top outbound market remains Saudi Arabia, which will grow 17 per cent over the next three years alone, to reach $27.9 billion. During the first seminar, entitled ‘Halal Tourism – How far have we come?’ Faeez Fadhlillah, Founder and CEO, Salam Standard and Tripfez, highlighted the growing importance of Muslim millennial travellers illustrated by the changing global socio-economic trends and underscored the potential pent up demand. “The biggest countries and some of the fastest growing economies in the world are found in Asia and the Middle East. These regions typically have large Muslim populations which are young with prosperous middle classes. In addition, second and third generation Muslim communities in developed economies such as Europe and North America now have far more purchasing power and overall, their combined growth generates increased demand for faith-based travel and tourism,” Fadhlillah said. During the second seminar, ‘Halal travel becomes mainstream’, Omar Ahmed, Founder and CEO, Sociable Earth, revealed some of the key results from a recent survey, in which 35,000 Muslim travellers participated. “Certainly, the halal travel market has graduated from its niche status to become an industry-shaping force, in its own right. It has become mainstream,” said Ahmed. “It is also clear that mainstream travel and tourism organisations will now have to become far more pro-active, if they want to attract increasing numbers of Halal travellers and tap into the potential of this massive market,” added Ahmed.
