CLEAR Eliminates Another Line at the Airport

April 21, 2014

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.

San Jose CLEARlanes now open!

September 13, 2013

CLEAR members can now speed through airport security in both Terminal A and B at San Jose International Airport (SJC), serving all airlines. We are excited to bring the fastest, most predictable way through airport security to more Bay Area travelers.

The hours for Terminal A and Terminal B CLEARlanes are Monday-Friday 5am-8pm. PreCheck integration will be available in both terminals at San Jose International once PreCheck opens there next month. This means that if CLEAR members have PreCheck, they can use the CLEARlane as usual to avoid long lines and then use the PreCheck lane for physical screening (if qualified for that flight): the most efficient travel experience possible. The CLEAR PreCheck experience is currently available in Denver, Orlando, and San Francisco.

We are thrilled to be open in San Jose. CLEAR is growing fast and has already been used over 1.2 million times, saving our members over 36 million minutes. A huge “thank you” to our members for their continued loyalty and support.

WESTCHESTER HERE WE COME!

October 18, 2012

Hi Everyone,

Exciting news! CLEAR is adding another airport to its network:  New York’s Westchester County Airport (HPN).  The plan is to launch in November, ahead of the busy holiday travel season.  HPN is an important part of CLEAR’s New York footprint and is a great first step to bringing CLEAR to other NY airports (something we are very excited about as a NY-based company).

A bit of background on Westchester:

-       Westchester County is located about 30 miles outside of Manhattan

-       It is home to several Fortune 500 companies including: Pepsi, IBM, MasterCard and Starwood

-       4 of the top 10 destinations from HPN are in Florida…Orlando (another CLEAR city) is Westchester’s second most popular destination!

This is our 3rd airport announcement in the last 6 months, and there are more to come, so stay tuned!  In the last few weeks, the CLEAR team has been fanned out across the country meeting with airport executives, city officials and airlines in order to bring all stakeholders together, because expanding CLEAR is our #1 priority.

Thanks to all of our loyal CLEAR members for sharing in our excitement – we couldn’t do what we do without your feedback, support, and loyalty.

See you in the CLEAR lane!

Caryn Seidman-Becker

CLEAR CEO

 

CLEAR coming soon to Westchester County Airport!


Meet Nora!

September 14, 2012

Hi There!

Let me introduce myself—I’m Nora, and I’m the newest member of the CLEAR team. I came on board because, as someone who developed a strong wanderlust at an early age, I was so excited by the way CLEAR transforms travel.

I always say that I love to travel but hate traveling. That may seem like splitting hairs, but if you’ve ever missed a flight because security unexpectedly took 2 hours, or been bored out of your mind sitting at a gate because you overestimated how long security would take, then you know what I mean.  So for me CLEAR is a no brainer, and I am thrilled to be part of a team dedicated to helping people like me begin to love the destination and love getting there.

While the speed and hassle-free travel may have been what caught my attention at first, after spending a few months at the company, I’ve realized that CLEAR’s mission goes beyond simply speeding members through the airport. Each member of the CLEAR team, from our CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker to the attendants you see in the CLEAR lanes everyday, is completely committed to making flying more secure for every traveler.  At its heart, CLEAR is a company with an important purpose and one I’m very proud to be a part of.

Please remember my inbox is always open, and I’d love to hear from you!

CLEAR RECEIVES SAFETY ACT CERTIFICATION

June 28, 2012

CLEAR receives Safety Act Certification by The U.S. Department Of Homeland Security for its expedited traveler biometric identification technology solution

(NEW YORK, NY – June 25, 2012) – CLEAR has been awarded the prestigious SAFETY Act Certification by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), making it the only expedited traveler solution to be placed on DHS’s “Approved Product List for Homeland Security.”

CLEAR seeks to improve the airport experience by enhancing security and offering speed and predictability to busy travelers. With its innovative biometric technology platform, CLEAR securely automates the identification process at airports enabling its members to verify their identity using their fingerprint or iris.  Homeland Security has always been at the forefront of CLEAR’s mission, and the company values the SAFETY Act Certification as recognition of its unique and secure technology.

CLEAR’s airport partners also benefit from the SAFETY Act Certification, as its liability protections extend to them as well.  “CLEAR helps airports achieve the most effective security in the most efficient way all while increasing throughput and delivering a better experience for all travelers,” said Caryn Seidman-Becker, CLEAR Chairman and CEO.  “This Certification further protects our airport partners and we continue to work tirelessly to bring CLEAR’s service to airports across the nation.”

On December 21, 2010, CLEAR was awarded SAFETY Act Designation from DHS, a prerequisite for Certification.  In order to then receive SAFETY Act Certification, CLEAR’s technology demonstrated consistent positive results, as well as proven procedures for installation, use, and maintenance of its systems.  This Certification follows a rigorous review of the systems, processes and policies that are part of the CLEAR solution, and provides significant liability protections for CLEAR and its airport partners.

CLEAR’s Certification as a DHS Qualified Anti-terrorism Technology comes on the heels of its recent launch of expedited traveler services at two additional airports: San Francisco International Airport and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.  To date, CLEAR’s member-only lanes have been used over 600,000 times across its national network.

“CLEAR is the whole package: Certainty of speed, high standards of customer service and, of course, increased security,” noted Seidman-Becker.  “We are honored to continue working with industry thought-leaders and the Department of Homeland Security to better serve all travelers.”

CLEAR has been Certified by the Department of Homeland Security as a Qualified Anti-terrorism Technology under the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002 (the SAFETY Act).  You can view CLEAR’s SAFETY Act listing on DHS’ Approved Product List for Homeland Security at the SAFETY Act website at www.safetyact.gov.

“Innovative technology solutions are important in continuing to build our airports into powerful engines for economic development,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker.  “We are thrilled to introduce CLEAR to more of America’s mayors and demonstrate our ability to help create new jobs, generate additional revenue and increase security at airports across the country.”
