    What to Know

    • Starting Thursday, the airport will become the latest to go “cashless” at all terminals and other locations for the airline.

    • MIA becomes one of over 50 airports American Airlines flies into that has switched to a no cash system.

    If you plan on flying into or from Miami International Airport using American Airlines, be prepared to use your credit or debit cards if you need to make a purchase.

    Starting Thursday, the airport will become the latest to go “cashless” at all terminals and other locations for the airline. All customers who want to buy a ticket, pay for baggage or an unaccompanied minor will need to use a card to pay.

    The airline is working on a third party vendor who will help those travelers only carrying cash be able to transfer that money onto a debit card.

    MIA becomes one of over 50 airports American Airlines flies into that has switched to a no cash system, saying transactions take less time with cards and reduces complexity or work for their agents at each location.

    Other airports that have switched to the all card system include both LaGuardia and Kennedy airports in New York City, Reagan Airport in Washington D.C., Los Angeles International Airport as well as airports in Philadelphia, Dallas and more.
