MBJ Teams Up with Alliance Payment Services Limited to Offer Prepaid MasterCard at SIA
Montego Bay, Jamaica – MBJ Airports Limited, operator of Jamaica’s leading gateway to the world, Sangster International Airport (SIA), has teamed up with Alliance Payment Services Limited (APSL) to offer a prepaid Mastercard for the convenience of travelers.
The partnership comes on the heels of American Airlines’ August announcement that it will no longer be accepting cash at the two international airports it serves in Jamaica.
The US carrier stated in a press release issued August 31st that effective September 17th, its operations in Jamaica will be cashless to streamline operations for the benefit of its team members and customers.
“We recognized the challenge this change in policy may present and have moved quickly to establish an agreement with APSL to offer a prepaid Mastercard at the airport for the convenience of our customers,” commented MBJ Airports CEO Rafael Echevarne.
The prepaid Mastercard is available for purchase beginning Monday, September 17 from APSL locations across from counters 45 and 80 in the ticketing concourse at SIA.
The prepaid Mastercard can be used to purchase airline tickets, pay for bags and inflight services and is accepted by any vendor that accepts Mastercard locally and internationally.
