Clear representatives say LAX fliers can sign up for a membership at an airport kiosk in a few minutes by scanning a driver’s license or a passport, answering background questions and creating a biometric account that includes an iris and fingerprint scan.
Once a member’s identification is confirmed, the passenger is escorted by a Clear employee through a special lane that bypasses the identification portion of the Transportation Security Administration’s screening line. The Clear member then moves directly to the queue for X-ray machine and metal detectors.
Clear has hired 90 workers for its LAX operations.
“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 Deborah Flint, chief executive at LAX.
