How to Jump the Line at Airport Security

November 10, 2011

It costs $179 a year to join, which might sound steep if you’re not a road warrior, but there’s a discount rate of $50; for family members and no charge at all for children 18 and under. It works like this: You sign up online, then present an ID and get your fingerprints taken at one of the enrollment centers where Clear operates. At that point, you get a card that essentially gets you right through security with no wait (you still have go through the metal detector and bag check, of course).

Nice piece by Barbara Peterson on CLEAR in the Daily Traveler on Conde Nast Traveler.
