American Airlines no longer accepting cash at airport

Barbadians using American Airlines (AA) service from the Grantley Adams International Airport need to ensure they have a debit or credit card handy as the airline has implemented a no-cash policy.  

The cashless transaction policy was implemented today and will require passengers to use swipe cards in order to purchase tickets or pay for checked baggage.  

General Manager for American Airlines in Barbados, Jennifer Carter noted, 

“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.”  

Carter also pointed out the use of cash for transactions can be complex for AA agents. 

“Cashless transactions reduce the complexity of work for our agents who will no longer have to worry about 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.”
