In line with its commitment to providing technologically advanced services to its customers, Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) announced today the launch of a new booking payment method for flydubai and DIB customers via Al Islami Online Banking.
This new service makes travel bookings even easier for DIB customers, who can now book and pay for flydubai bookings without a card and from the comfort of their homes or offices. The bank is also in the process of enabling Vlydubai payments through Cash Deposit Machines (CDM) for both DIB and non-DIB customers. The signing ceremony took place at the bank’s head office, and was attended by senior officials from the bank as well as the Dubai-based airline.
Musabbah Al Qaizi, Head of Electronic Banking Services, DIB, said, “DIB is committed to providing value-added services for more than 900,000 customers in the UAE alone. The launch of this new service will allow customers to make their bookings via the flydubai Call Centre or Website, and then make cardless payments through DIB eChannels. Dubai Islamic Bank looks forward to continuing to assess opportunities and adding more electronic services that will further enhance ease of banking for our customers.”
Hamad Obaidalla, Chief Commercial Officer, flydubai, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Dubai Islamic Bank. This new payment service, in conjunction with DIB, continues our commitment to making travel a little less complex, a little less stressful and a little less expensive for our passengers. We thank Dubai Islamic Bank for their support and are certain that our new relationship will reap positive rewards for our customers.”
The launch of DIB’s new online ticket payment service is one of many recent technological milestones for the bank, including the launch of Al Islami Mobile Banking, which provides a wide range of secure and convenient banking services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, through a customised mobile-based website.
The bank also has an enhanced online banking system that provides over 50 services to its customers. Through Al Islami Online Banking, DIB customers can perform various transactions including local and global fund transfers, making a range of utility bill payments, as well as several account and card related transactions.
