Ride-hailing app Uber has entered into a partnership with ArabiaWeather to allow customers to check local weather conditions in their area.

Both companies will utilise each other's' technologies to offer both a weather forecast and an Uber ride, especially during severe weather conditions.

Customers in Jordan and Saudi Arabia will be able to take advantage of the partnership, plus first-time Uber users will receive 50% off their first two rides when they sign-up through ArabiaWeather's platforms.

Mohammed Al Shaker, founder and CEO, ArabiaWeather, said: "There is a natural synergy between the services that we each provide due to a strong positive correlation between weather and people's behaviour in choosing their preferred mode of transportation. Both of our companies are aiming to provide the public with the tools they need to seamlessly plan, prepare and conduct their lives."

Anthony Khoury, general manager, Uber Middle East, added: "We are delighted to partner with ArabiaWeather. Uber is in over 25 cities around the region, and this partnership is aligned with our continuous efforts to provide the largest number of people with safe, reliable and affordable transportation when and where they want it, whether that is on a hot summer day, or a rainy night out in town.

"As a technology company, we are always excited to work with tech-innovators like ourselves, and with regional players and startups like ArabiaWeather who deliver daily weather conditions to millions around the region."

To take adavantage of the offer, Saudi Arabia customers can use the promo-code AwKSA, and Jordan riders can use the promo-code AwJordan.
