There’s no denying it: Muslim-friendly travel is growing.

At present, halal tourism accounts for 11 per cent of the global tourism industry. Valued at €140.7 million (about Dh632.6 million) in 2016, it’s set to grow to €284 million by 2022.

 According to the Mastercard-HalalTrip Muslim Millennial Travel Report 2017, it was projected that total expenditure from Muslim millennial travellers as a segment will surpass $100 billion (Dh367 billion) by 2025.
