Cayman Airways will not accept any cash transactions at any of its cargo and airport locations in the United State from 15 July.

According to an announcement last week, the airline’s US sites will only accept payment by debit or credit cards. This will apply to all payments normally processed at ticket counters and cargo facilities, including baggage fees, Business Class upgrades, and other purchases, the airline stated.

An airline spokesperson said passengers with upcoming travel to the USA who anticipate not being able to pay by debit or credit card, can visit a Cayman Airways ticket office in the Cayman Islands and pre-pay for the necessary charges by cash. This must be done before departure.

“Additionally, most airport locations also have third party cash-to-card vending machines available should these be required by passengers,” the airline stated.
