Registered Traveler Program Costs Remain Stable

Despite rising fees by the Transportation Security Administration, Clear—the registered-traveler program that expedites the security-screening process—will keep the annual price of its service below $100, the Wall Street Journal reports. As the program preps for its national rollout (it has been operating a pilot program in Orlando since July 2005) the TSA determined the program would cost around $30 per member. Until now, the TSA has waived the charge, leaving travelers with only the $79.95 cost from Clear. Clear Chief Executive Officer Steven Brill says the company will absorb a portion of the cost by the TSA and lower its charge to $69.95, keeping the total cost at $99.95. The new pricing began last week. Clear, with more than 30,000 members, says next up this fall after Orlando are New York's Kennedy International Airport, British Airways Terminal 7; and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky, Indianapolis and San Jose, CA, international airports.
