UmrahHolidays International (UHI), one of the leading B2B travel Business subsidiaries of WebBeds, offering hotels and travel services with special focus on Umrah & Hajj, has secured partnerships with two key Chinese travel companies.

UHI has partnered with Haoqiao, one of the largest wholesale players in China with an extensive nationwide network of more than 17,000 retail travel agents, and Mafengwo, a highly influential online travel agency (OTA) which has been nicknamed the “TripAdvisor of China”, with over 130 million registered users who generate three terabytes of data daily.

Under the new partnerships, Haoqiao will become the official retail distributor of UHI in China, while Mafengwo will be the company’s exclusive OTA partner. Together, this combination of widespread online and retail distribution will enable UHI to extend its reach across China, where international tourism is becoming increasingly popular among the country’s estimated 20 million Muslims.

“China is a hugely exciting market for UHI, WebBeds, and the global halal travel sector. By forming partnerships with two of the country’s leading online and retail travel companies, UHI can now cater to customers in every corner of China, however they choose to book. We look forward to working with Haoqiao and Mafengwo, and enabling thousands of Muslims in China to make their important Umrah pilgrimage,” commented Daryl Lee, CEO Asia Pacific, WebBeds.

“We understand that for many Muslims, the Umrah pilgrimage is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But all too often the planning and booking process can be complex and daunting. UHI’s deep local knowledge, global network and multilingual team will take away the stress. Chinese customers can rest assured that they will enjoy a full range of professional services from four of the most trusted names in the industry: WebBeds, UmrahHolidays International, Haoqiao and Mafengwo,” said Aly Siky, CEO, UHI.
