American Airlines announced that effective December 10, 2018, the airline will be going cashless at North Eleuthera (ELH), George Town (GGT) and Marsh Harbour (MHH) International Airports.
Passengers will be required to use a credit or debit card to make any transactions at the airport, including purchasing tickets and paying for checked baggage.
“American has transitioned to a cashless airport environment at many locations around the world, allowing our team members to assist our customers in a faster and more efficient manner,” said Caroline Hollingsworth, American’s country manager for The Bahamas.
“Moving away from cash transactions also reduces the complexity of work for our agents who will no longer have to worry about handling cash, finding exact change or closing out a cash drawer at the end of the day. This is positive news for our customers and for our team members at the airport.”
American currently offers nonstop service to Eleuthera, George Town and Marsh Harbour from its hub at Miami (MIA) and Saturday service to George Town from its hub at Charlotte, North Carolina (CLT).
Beginning December 22, 2018, American will offer seasonal service to Eleuthera and Marsh Harbour from its hub at CLT.
