What’s better than breezing through airport security? Having your drink and snack waiting for you on the other side of course! To make travel easier, CLEAR, Orlando International Airport and OTG have partnered to battle another long line.
In this exciting new beta program, CLEARmembers can now order snacks as they speed through the CLEARlane and have their items waiting for them at a CIBO Express Gourmet Market counter nearest to their gate. Payments are embedded in the new grab-n-go concessions program so CLEAR travelers don’t need to wait at the register to pay. No more waiting for people fishing change out of their pockets, deciding which magazine to get or debating the merits of coffee vs tea.
This is another step in CLEAR’s mission to create a better customer experience beyond the airport security line. We are excited for this pilot and look forward to debuting this service at other CLEAR airports.
“CLEAR continues to transform the travel experience for our members. We understand the many pain points and bottlenecks travelers face today and are very excited to ease the stress with this new benefit.” stated Caryn Seidman Becker, CLEAR’s Chairman and CEO.
We want to know your thoughts. Tweet us @clear_me with your experience, pictures and questions. We look forward to hearing your stories about our new service.

There’s one question on every traveler’s mind no matter where they’re headed—“how long will it take me to get through airport security?”
Ask your friends and they may answer anywhere between 5 minutes (if they’re a CLEAR member) and over an hour—it’s not easy to predict. But, we really wanted to know—just how long does it really take to get through airport security around the country?
So we devised the CLEAR challenge to find out. It’s simple: all you have to do is time yourself going through the security checkpoint, and then share your time with us on Facebook for a chance to win an incredible grand prize. Submit your time either on a mobile device or a computer as many times as you can before March 17th, and start trying to beat your own personal best time!
For an extra challenge, we went to the fastest and most efficient man we know, Tim Ferriss, to help us set the bar for speeding through airport security. He timed himself going through the lane, and we won’t lie to you, it’s fast, but we know you’re faster. All you have to do to enter is submit your time – racing Tim is just an added bonus!
So what do you win? 2 airline tickets to anywhere in the U.S. That’s right—just for sharing your time at airport security, we’re sending you on another trip. We’ll also be randomly selecting from the entries for smaller prizes throughout the Challenge.
So on your marks, get set, and GO take the CLEAR Challenge for a chance to win! See you in the CLEAR lane…

It seems some people really love spending their time waiting in lines. For them, Black Friday is probably one of the year’s highlights: the opportunity to camp outside for hours or days, with fellow line-standing enthusiasts, doggedly holding their spots among the first to access killer sale prices.
The Black Friday line-waiting phenomenon reached new heights this year. Even retailers with mobile apps attempted to capitalize on it by pushing special deals for bored customers to peruse at peak line-waiting hours. At least one person waited in line since November 16 for the sales slated for November 25; some stores worked to keep the line entertained with movies and refreshments; and others made plans to avoid catastrophe in the crush of eager shoppers thronging doors.
For the rest of you, who would much sooner blow past lines in favor of using your time elsewhere, we have a special holiday offer. This season, try out CLEAR for two months free.
CLEAR gives you the gift of time on each flight you take out of a participating airport. Knowing you won’t be stuck in a long security line means saving the time you’d normally allot to unpredictable security line wait times, removing a layer of iffiness from your travel schedule. We know you’ll appreciate the extra hours during the holiday season especially, the busiest travel time of the year, and we’re pretty sure none of the lengthy security lines you’d face without CLEAR are offering free entertainment and refreshments.
Flying with CLEAR can mean time for last minute errands and shopping before arriving at the airport; it could be a little extra time before saying goodbye to loved ones at the end of a holiday visit. What it a guarantees is a stress-free express path through security and to your gate.
Happy holidays from CLEAR! Sign up for your free two-month trial before the end of December by clicking here and entering promotion code CHMNHOL in the promo code box on the payment page if it’s not pre-filled for you.
