CLEAR, the company that transforms what is uniquely you into a secure biometric identity for a fast, friction-free experience, launched today at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in advance of a record breaking summer travel season – enabling travelers to move seamlessly through airport security in only minutes.
CLEAR turns fingerprints and iris images into a secure biometric identity that fundamentally transforms the travel experience. Instead of waiting for a TSA agent to review an ID and boarding pass, CLEAR members verify their identities with a simple tap of a finger or blink of the eye and then move quickly through the security checkpoint straight to the metal detectors and bag scanners. CLEAR members never have to take out their driver’s license, passport, or other forms of ID.
CLEAR soft-launched last Friday at Terminals 2/3 which service Delta, whilst Terminals 4, 6 and 7 are due to launch any day, servicing American, JetBlue, Alaska, Virgin America & United passengers. Sources tell Erika’s Travel Tips that these terminals could open as early as tomorrow.
CLEAR is trusted by over one million members and is certified as a “qualified anti-terrorism technology” by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. New members who enroll at the airport receive a one-month free trial and can use CLEAR immediately.
“We are thrilled to bring CLEAR to travelers at LAX. We have no doubt the VIP CLEAR experience will resonate with Los Angeles consumers and we couldn’t be more excited to offer another place for our loyal members to use CLEAR,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker.
“With CLEAR as an added benefit at LAX, we continue to improve the LAX guest experience by offering choices that help travelers save time,” said LAWA Chief Executive Officer Deborah Flint. “They will benefit from the freedom to enjoy shopping, dining options, as well as other guests amenities beyond security screening.”

Kennedy, New York LaGuardia, San Francisco, San Jose, Denver, Detroit, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston Bush, Houston Hobby, San Antonio, Austin, Orlando, Miami, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Baltimore-Washington, Seattle, Washington Dulles, Washington Reagan, Minneapolis-Saint Paul and Westchester County Airport in New York.
