Home rental company Airbnb launched an Arabic version of its
global platform this week, in a bid to strengthen its presence in
the Middle East and North Africa markets.
The US-based home-sharing company, which has over 70,000
property listings in the region, localized its website and mobile
app to allow users to navigate the platforms in Arabic, and also
allow them to book and pay in their local currencies.
“We want to inspire more Arabic speaking travelers to explore
their favorite destinations through authentic, local stays and
Experiences on the Airbnb platform,” Hadi Moussa, Regional
Manager Middle East and Africa at Airbnb, said in a release.
“We want to create a true sense of belonging for them by
ensuring they can do so in their native language going forward,”
Airbnb will leave West Bank homes listed to settle suits
