MAARTEN–Effective Monday, November12, 2018 American will be going cashless at Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM) in St. Maarten. 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 Oliver Bojos, American’s Country Director for the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Bermuda and St. Maarten. “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.”
American offers nonstop service to St. Maarten from its hubs at Miami International Airport (MIA)and Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) as well as seasonal service from New York (JFK). Service from Charlotte International Airport (CLT), which was suspended in 2017 due to hurricane damage, restarted on Nov. 4.
