Clear Opens At Salt Lake City Airport, Announces 1 Million Usages
Clear, the fast pass for airport security, announced that its lane has opened at Salt Lake City International Airport.
Travelers flying on airlines operating from Salt Lake City can use Clear’s fast pass lane here and at 17 other airports nationwide. Earlier this month, Clear reached a significant milestone in its nearly three year history when the company clocked 1 million usages as members passed through Clear lanes around the country. A Salt Lake City resident was among the Clear members using a Clear lane at the moment the millionth milestone was reached.
That member -- Mark Nakamura, a managing consultant at IBM -- received a lifetime membership at the moment Clear celebrated its one millionth trip.
“I have been a member of Clear since its inception,” said Maureen Riley, Executive Director of the Salt Lake City Department of Airports. “I am pleased to offer this option to our customers.”
“The launch of Clear at the Salt Lake City Airport is an important addition to the Clear network, said Steven Brill, Clear’s founder and CEO. “It’s fitting that one of the millionth winners was from Salt Lake City, and I’m pleased that travelers (such as Mark Nakamura) who are already members can now get the added benefit of using their cards at their home airport.”
Clear enrollment is available in Terminal 2 on the ticketing level (adjacent to the escalators used to access the security checkpoint). Clear currently operates 30 enrollment locations across the country and also brings mobile enrollment onsite to businesses nationwide. A second Clear lane at the Salt Lake City Airport (in Terminal 1) will open in the coming weeks.
Clear was recently chosen by Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to implement the program there; lane openings at Hartsfield-Jackson are expected by summer.
Clear members are pre-screened by the TSA and, after application approval, are provided with a card that allows exclusive access to Clear’s security lanes nationwide. The innovative, high-tech Clear Card verifies a fingerprint or iris image selected by members during enrollment.
