CLEAR Expands with First Airport Outside Continental U.S.
CLEAR today announced the launch of its secure identity technology at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU). SJU is the first airport outside the continental United States to feature CLEAR’s signature expedited identity verification lanes.
Today’s launch represents continued growth in CLEAR’s footprint, where it serves a total of 46 airports and boasts 14+ million members. CLEAR already serves 8 of SJU’s top 10 U.S. destinations, allowing members traveling through SJU to use CLEAR on both ends of their journey. Members use CLEAR’s network of dedicated lanes to verify their identity with their eyes or fingers, replacing the need to take out their wallet and driver’s license. After verification, a CLEAR Ambassador escorts members through the dedicated lane and directly to TSA physical security, reducing the amount of time spent waiting in line at the security checkpoint.
“CLEAR is excited to bring our secure identity technology to Puerto Rico, create good-paying local jobs and invest in the local economy,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. “Aerostar has been a great partner, and we’re pleased to work together to create a more predictable, less stressful airport experience for people traveling through SJU.”
In celebration of today’s launch, CLEAR will also make a donation to Hurricane Fiona relief efforts on behalf of members who enroll and verify at SJU during November, up to $10,000. Enrollment takes less than five minutes and can be done with the help of a CLEAR Ambassador at any pod at SJU; verifications can only be done with a valid same-day boarding pass.
CLEAR Plus – an opt-in membership that provides access to CLEAR’s expedited security lanes – costs about $16 a month billed annually, with discounts available for Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and American Express members such as Platinum and Green cardholders. Newly enrolling active military, veterans, and government officials are also eligible for discounted memberships, and additional family members can be added to an existing CLEAR Plus account for just $60 per adult per year.
