The Mastercard-CrescentRating Global Muslim Travel Index (GMTI) 2017, which was officially launched in Jakarta, on May 3, saw Oman lose one spot since 2016, in a list which is topped by Malaysia, followed by the UAE.

The sector is expected to be worth US$220 billion by 2020, according to the most comprehensive research, released on the global Muslim travel market.

 

The index, which covers 130 destinations, showed a number of non-Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) destinations in Asia, move up the rankings, a result of the concerted effort, to adapt their services to cater to and attract the Muslim travel market.

 

Singapore retained its pole position for the non-OIC destinations, with Thailand, the UK, South Africa and Hong Kong rounding up the top five.
