First-of-its-kind partnership between two market leaders enables Huawei device users in 18 markets to find the best rates on flights and hotels right from their search app
05 July, 2021, Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Huawei’s Petal Search, the easy-to-use application and search engine pre-installed on Huawei smartphones, has inked a partnership on 01 July 2021 with Wego, a leading travel marketplace in the MENA and APAC regions.
With this, Huawei device users will see best deals and instant booking options for transport, stay, and attractions from Wego based on their searches, which they can instantly click to book. This enables a true one-app travel planning experience, and integrates the power of Petal Search with Wego’s leading portfolio of deals and options. Users in 18 markets will benefit from this, including consumers in UAE, Egypt, and KSA.
This partnership brings together two leaders in their respective fields. Petal Search is a one-stop search engine integrated into Huawei devices, delivering a convenient, smooth, GDPR-compliant search experience. Wego harnesses powerful technology to find and compare results from hundreds of airline, hotel, and travel agency websites.
Adam Xiao, Managing Director of Huawei Mobile Services in the Middle East and Africa, said: “We believe that this partnership will transform the holiday and travel planning process for Huawei users as they consider their next trip. Travellers who search for destinations, flights, and hotels on Petal Search can be confident that they will get the best results, as well as the best deals available, from Wego. The timeliness of this is noteworthy, especially as international travel begins to reopen and families and individuals in our region plan their summer schedules.”
Mamoun Hmedan, Managing Director, MENA and India, Wego, said: “This is an exciting development for customers of both Huawei and Wego, as Wego presents an unbiased comparison of all travel products and prices offered in the marketplace. We believe that partnerships like this one can play an important part in rebuilding consumer confidence and enthusiasm for travel. I am confident that we will see a steady increase in bookings over the coming months as people rediscover the love of travel.”
