American Airlines (AA) announced this Thursday August 15, that as of August 20, 2018, the airline will no longer accept cash transactions at the Cancun International Airport (CUN), Quintana Roo.

From that date on, passengers must use credit or debit cards to make any transaction at the airport, including the purchase of tickets and baggage registration.

“At the global level, American Airlines is in a transition phase so that at each of the airports where we operate, only cashless transactions are accepted, allowing our team members to help our clients in a faster and more efficient way”, said Alfredo Jaimes, general manager of AA in Cancun.

“Getting rid of cash transactions also reduces the complexity of the work for our agents, who will no longer have to worry about managing money, finding the exact change or doing a cash close operarion at the end of the day. These are positive news for our customers and for our team at the airport, “added Jaimes, in a statement.


In this way, the Cancun International Airport joins the more than 50 airports worldwide in which AA operates throughout the world, where the airline’s transactions are no longer carried out in cash, including the international airports of Miami , New York – JFK, Los Angeles and Dallas / Fort Worth, among others.

In Mexico, American Airlines will soon establish the cashless transaction process at the Los Cabos (SJD), Puerto Vallarta (PVR) and Cozumel (CZM) airports.

AA offers up to 685 weekly flights between Mexico and the United States, from its hubs in Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas / Fort Worth, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Phoenix, serving 21 international airports.

Very soon, AA will be operating at 22 airports throughout Mexico: Aguascalientes, Cancun, Mexico City, Chihuahua, Cozumel, Guadalajara, Hermosillo, Leon, Mazatlan, Merida, Monterrey, Morelia, Puebla, Puerto Vallarta, Queretaro, San Jose del Cabo, San Luis Potosí, Torreón, Zacatecas and seasonal flights to Zihuatanejo and Manzanillo, and in December a new route to Oaxaca.
