HalalBooking is proud to report its return to exponential growth in 2021, mirroring the 50-70% year-on-year exponential growth the company experienced before the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. In 2019, HalalBooking had sales of $31 million. However, in 2020 in the height of the pandemic, the travel sector was one of the hardest-hit and sales dropped to just $8 million. It is, therefore, a huge achievement that in 2021, sales had recovered to pre-pandemic levels with record sales in most of its major markets.
