Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) has launched a new booking payment method for Flydubai and DIB customers via Al Islami Online Banking.

DIB said that the new service makes travel bookings even easier for customers, who can now book and pay for Flydubai bookings without a card and from the comfort of their homes or offices.

DIB is also in the process of enabling Flydubai payments through cash deposit machines (CDM) for both DIB and non-DIB customers.

DIB claimed that it has an enhanced online banking system that provides over 50 services to its customers. Recently, it has launched Al Islami Mobile Banking, which provides a range of secure and convenient banking services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, through a customised mobile-based website.

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.

Musabbah Al Qaizi, head of electronic banking services at DIB, said: “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 of Flydubai, said: “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.”
