Umrah Package Disaster

Tuesday, August 8 2017 00:00 WIB

Syam had suspected something was ¡®not quite right with the umrah (minor pilgrimage) promotional package. Offered at Rp 14.3 million, it cost far less than the average umrah package. Although he did question the company, the former bank employee could not refuse when his wife urged him to take the package. The resident of Ciputat, Banten province, registered with First Travel in December 2015.

The travel agency promised that the couple would depart for the Holy Land a year later. After the deadline came and went, Syam and his wife have yet to go. He attempted to contact the travel agency, but faced difficulties. He later went to the agency’s office on Jalan Radar AURI, Cimanggis in Depok, West Java.

After going all out to offer umrah promotional packages, First Travel still has not flown thousands of its prospective minor pilgrimage travelers to Mecca. The Ministry of Religious affairs has revoked the travel agency’s umrah organizer license.
