SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic- American Airlines announced today that as of February 18, it will discontinue cash transactions in its operations at Las Américas International Airport (AILA).
As of the date indicated, all passengers flying on American Airlines must use credit or debit cards to carry out any transaction in the AILA, including the purchase of tickets or the payment of checked baggage, thus adding up to now three airports in the country under this new modality.
The information was released by Mr. Oliver Bojos, general director of American in the country, who specified that moving away from cash transactions also reduces the complexity of work for agents, who will no longer have to worry about handling money, finding exact change, or balancing a cash drawer at the end of the day.
During 2018, American Airlines discontinued the use of cash in its operations in Punta Cana and Puerto Plata, as part of a global transition of the airline that works every day to offer quality service quickly and efficiently.
The AILA joins the more than 50 airports worldwide where American no longer conducts cash transactions, including, in addition to Punta Cana and Puerto Plata international airports, Miami International Airport, New York John F. Kennedy International Airport, Curaçao International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, among others.
American currently offers direct flights from Santo Domingo to the cities of Miami (MIA) and Philadelphia (PHL), and beginning in the summer of 2019 will fly direct to Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Charlotte Douglas (CLT) airports..
