Muslims globally can now share their Halal food experiences.
HalalTrip recently announced the launch of a new app, making place discovery and trip planning easier.
The new app showcases two essential travel resources for Muslims – Halal food discovery and prayer times. The company is planning to launch features such as city guides and hotel-booking soon. The app allows users to ‘spot’ Halal food dishes while on their travels and upload images, comment and share via social media.
Halal food is one of the biggest drivers of tourism. The app is available in both an English and Arabic user interface, also integrates CrescentRating’s in-flight prayer time calculator.
According to CrescentRating, the Halal tourism sector was worth US$140 billion in 2013. This figure is expected to reach US$192 bn by 2020. Fazal Bahardeen, CEO of HalalTrip said the app has been launched in direct response to global trends and will be a huge help for tourists.
“We want to offer a complete travel experience. The app will also help users locate and share new Halal food spots in the cities they are residing,” added Bahardeen.
The app is available for both iPhone/iPad and Android smartphones and can be downloaded in the App Store/Google Play.
