Dubai, UAE, September 18, 2011 – Noor Islamic Bank has signed an agreement with flydubai, Dubai’s leading low-cost airline, to enable travellers to make payments through the bank’s multiple easy-to-use payment channels available throughout the UAE.
flydubai customers will be able to pay for their flight bookings at the designated Noor Islamic Bank branches during working hours, or 24 hours a day through the bank’s online banking system. Existing Noor Islamic Bank card customers can also redeem Noor Points for flydubai vouchers, which can be used to purchase flights and other ancillary products and services.
The new facility enhances the wide range of value-added transactional banking solutions which Noor Islamic Bank offers to corporate and non-corporate customers.
The agreement was signed by Hussain AlQemzi, CEO of Noor Islamic Bank and Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of flydubai, at the flydubai headquarters.
AlQemzi said: “We see this partnership as a key collaboration between two partners with promising growth goals. This partnership is yet another example of Noor Islamic Bank’s commitment to providing customized, Sharia compliant financial solutions to our corporate clients. We will continue to develop and strengthen our affiliation with flydubai on various other projects with an aim to achieve a long-term relationship.”
Commenting on the new agreement, flydubai CEO Al Ghaith said: “Convenient ways to book and pay for flights and continuously improving the passenger experience are some of flydubai’s ongoing aims. This new around-the-clock payment system from Noor Islamic Bank will bring us even closer to this goal while also allowing more people access to our everyday low fares through the voucher redemption system.
