The Indianapolis Airport Authority (IAA) and iQueue Priority Access announced they will re-open expedited security lanes for registered travelers at Indianapolis International Airport (IND beginning Monday, August 16. IND is the first U.S. airport to re-establish a registered traveler service since the CLEAR registered traveler program, which was operated by Verified Identity Pass, Inc., ceased operations last June.
The iQueue Priority Access program allows business travelers and other frequent fliers to pay a $169 annual membership fee for a biometric identity card that provides them expedited passage through airport security checkpoints. Travelers can register on-site at IND beginning Monday, August 2. The enrollment location in Civic Plaza will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Travelers can also register online beginning Monday at www.flyiqueue.com.
A variety of discounted iQueue membership plans will be available during the initial launch period, including reduced family and corporate plans. In addition, former members of the CLEAR program are eligible for discounted iQueue memberships and credit for the time remaining on their CLEAR membership, up to one year.
CLEAR’s registered traveler program had over 250,000 enrolled members across the U.S., over 12,000 of whom were enrolled at IND. “We expect to announce similar agreements with other U.S. airports in the near future, including those that formerly offered CLEAR lanes in addition to a host of new airports,” said Fred Fischer, iQueue’s managing partner.
