Member Terry Martin has forwarded this notice from Caribbean Sky Tours, of interest to those of our members who fly to Mexico:
- IMPORTANT UPDATE -
Starting November 19th, 2019 CASH (Mexican pesos) and CHECKS will not be accepted as a payment method for fuel at any Mexican Airport where fuel is sold by ASA.
The Authorities state that this measure was taken in order to avoid corruption and money laundering.
Previously fuel payment with US Dollars had already been forbidden by law.
We recommend always verifying in advance that fuel is available at your destination and that your selected method of payment will be accepted.
Commonly accepted fuel payments methods in Mexico are:
- Credit Cards (make sure your bank is notified and they will allow international transactions)
- Fuel Cards & Fuel Releases (from all major fuel companies)
For reference here is the bulletin from the authorities (in Spanish):
