CLEAR to Expand to McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas

Airport boardLas Vegas’s McCarran Airport is to receive CLEAR’s Biometric identity verification. CLEAR members use their biometrics (fingerprint and iris) to verify their identity, which makes for a speedier security screening at major US airports across the country. At all of its locations, CLEAR services are closely integrated with TSA's Pre-Check. Typical CLEAR members  get through airport checkpoints in less than 5 minutes.

The system is already available at ten U.S. airports including San Francisco, Houston Bush and Orlando airports. CLEAR expects to launch dedicated members-only security lanes and enrollment kiosks in three of McCarran's checkpoints in mid-August 2014.

"We are thrilled to be bringing CLEAR to Las Vegas. McCarran is the tenth airport offering our services," said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman Becker. "CLEAR and McCarran are dedicated to creating the safest and most efficient experience possible for travelers departing this world-renowned destination."
