Paymaster (Jamaica) Limited and interCaribbean Airways have signed a deal that will allow Jamaicans without a credit or debit card another payment option to purchase airline tickets.

The carrier which aims to increase flights to and from Jamaica, in a press release said the agreement will allow for ease and secure alternative payment option where people without credit cards are able to make online reservations and make their payment at any of Paymaster's over 200 locations islandwide to complete their ticket purchase within 24 hours.

“As we enter 2018, we are confident that this new payment option will benefit the Jamaican traveller,” CEO of interCaribbean Airways, Trevor Sadler said.

Paymaster began operations in October 1997 as the innovator in third-party payment collections. The company initiated and transformed the consumer services sector by facilitating easier bill payments and the processing of multiple transactions as a “one-stop shop” that provides the greatest convenience to customers, and today has more than 100 clients.

Traditionally, individuals purchasing airline tickets without a credit card, would opt to use a travel agent or go directly to the airline ticket counter and purchase tickets from the airline. Some airlines also have designated travel centres outside the airport, making it easier to pay for tickets without having to go to the airport.

The new partnership is expected to provide greater convenience to Jamaicans looking to book flights with interCaribbean Airways. The carrier currently operates EMB 120, Twin Otter and BE99 aircraft connecting Turks & Caicos, Antigua, the British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Jamaica, The Bahamas, the US Virgin Islands, Dominica and St Maarten/St Martin.

In 2014, the carrier started offering flights originating from Kingston to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, as part of its move to cross-link the Caribbean. Domestic flights are provided in Jamaica between Kingston and Montego Bay, as well as flights within the Turks and Caicos Islands.

General Manager of Paymaster Michael Fisher expressed that Paymaster's key business objective is to provide its stakeholders with simple, efficient and convenient bill payment services.

“The Paymaster team is delighted to have interCaribbean Airways as part of our existing client portfolio, as our service will undeniably extend the reach to interCaribbean's customers,” he said.
