The Salt Lake City International Airport has launched the Clear traveler identification system at its Terminal 2 passenger screening gates. The subscription system gives Clear members the option of quick screening when boarding flights at the terminal.
The Clear system uses both fingerprints and eye scan biometrics for secure access at airports and sports stadiums. With Clear, Salt Lake City travelers will be able to speed through security with just the touch of a finger or the blink of an eye. The launch at the Salt Lake airport expands Clear’s network of touch points to 30 U.S. airports and sports stadiums. Clear recently launched at Los Angeles International Airport and has expanded its presence to five additional airports this year.
“We’re thrilled to be joining the Salt Lake City community and providing a great experience for the unique combination of business and leisure travelers headed through this market,” said Clear CEO Caryn Seidman Becker. “As we continue to expand our nationwide presence, we look forward to bringing even more value to our members, in and out of the airport.”
“The SLC International Airport is pleased to partner with Clear to provide a new option for travelers to reduce their wait time in security,” said Salt Lake City International Airport interim executive director Russell Pack.
Clear has over 1 million members and is certified as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Clear’s three-step sign-up process takes less than five minutes. Clear digitally authenticates a traveler’s driver’s license or passport, confirms his identity and creates a biometric account.
Clear membership costs $15 per month, billed annually, with the option to add additional family members for $50 per year. Children under 18 join for free.
