This airline is going to be completely cashless at Miami International Airport by the end of this week.
It implies that the transactions for tickets, overweight and checked bags or unaccompanied minor fees need to be completed using debit or credit cards. The airline has said that going cashless would make it easier for employees and also speed up the check-in process.
For people travelling only with cash, the airline is working with a private company known as Ready Credit that converts cash to prepaid debit cards at about a dozen kiosks.
These kiosks are already installed and work in Spanish and English.
There exists a $5 fee for every transaction and would be converting up to $1,000.
American Airlines has already transitioned to cashless airport environments in over 50 locales including the John F. Kennedy International, Dallas International, the LaGuardia and Los Angeles International.
However, American Airlines is not the very first airline to adopt a completely cashless policy at Miami International Airport.
United Airlines has two ReadyStation kiosks at the airport ever since it had converted to cashless in the last three years.
There are 11 Ready Stations that are serving the JetBlue Airways, Spirit Airlines and United Airlines.
