SINGAPORE, May 11 — The Muslim Travel Warehouse, the world's first B2B (business-to-business) global aggregator of comprehensive Halal tourism products has seen a flying start following its official launch.

Over 100 travel agents and tour operators from across the world have signed up as distribution partners for the Muslim Travel Warehouse, which made its debut at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2015 held in Dubai on May 4-7.

In a statement today, Muslim Travel Warehouse Chief Marketing Officer Anas Kasak said this is the first time ever that travel agents have access to comprehensive tailored holiday packages directly for Muslim consumers, a market which is set to swell to US$ 200 billion in the next five years.

"During the ATM, Muslim Travel Warehouse also made agreements with over 30 destinations who will partner to develop Halal-friendly packages.

"We have launched packages for 16 destinations including the UAE, Malaysia, the UK, the US and Maldives.

"Hotels also want to partner us to develop further Halal packages, which means we could have products for nearly 50 destinations in the next six months," he said.

The latest figures in the MasterCard-CrescentRating Global Muslim Travel Index (GMTI) 2015 show the halal tourism sector was worth US$ 145 billion in 2014 and is predicted to grow to US$ 200 billion by 2020.

Muslim Travel Warehouse provides a live chat service and detailed Halal tourism information including fact sheets, digital brochures, and restaurant and spa menus. (PNA/Bernama)
