Biometric identity platform CLEAR has announced that its expedited traveler service is coming to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas, USA. CLEAR’s platform enhances the airport and customs experience for its members by providing a speedy security clearing process.
Jim Smith, executive director, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, said, “CLEAR offers our travelers an expedited security screening process which enhances customer service. Providing our passengers with a secure and more enjoyable travel process is a priority.”
Caryn Seidman-Becker, CEO for CLEAR, said, “We are thrilled to launch CLEAR in Austin – a city focused on growth and innovation. Austin-Bergstrom is one of the fastest growing airports in the country, serving almost 11 million passengers last year. CLEAR’s mission is to strengthen security and redefine the customer experience at the touch of a finger. We’re very excited to now offer our CLEAR members an additional opportunity to use our platform. We look forward to introducing this innovative technology to new customers in the Austin area.”
Certified by the Department of Homeland Security as a qualified anti-terrorism technology, CLEAR uses biometrics (fingerprint and iris) to verify its members’ identities. This technology expedites the security screening process at major US airports across the country, ensuring CLEAR travelers consistently average less than five minutes through airport security. CLEAR is integrated with TSA PreCheck at all of its locations.
Colt McCoy, quarterback for the Washington Redskins and a CLEAR advisor, said, “CLEAR’s unmatched technology is making travel easier, safer, and more pleasant. CLEAR’s game-changing technology is right at home in Austin, a city that has long embraced and valued true innovation. I’m confident travelers in Austin will quickly become CLEAR fans.”
