We are now happy to announce our customer-facing platform Maqam B2C. Maqam B2C allows customers the autonomy of customizing each aspect of their Umrah package and the added benefit of instant confirmation with their eVisa delivered directly to their inbox within 4 hours of booking.
About the Maqam Global Distribution System
Maqam is the GDS (global distribution system) introduced by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah to digitize the full Umrah booking process and promote transparency and revive the Muslim pilgrimage experience. The system provides complete information of all Makkah and Madinah suppliers to approved e-commerce sites such as Funadiq.com to facilitate hassle-free and reliable pilgrimage bookings.
As well, the system can link services, rates and bookings by consolidating products and services across all travel sectors, specific reservations for hotels, ground transportation, and meet and greet services to ensure pilgrims are getting confirmed bookings for the best price.
