CLEAR Launches Expedited Lanes at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport, Marking Fifth New Airport This Year
Amid summer travel surge, MKE becomes CLEAR's 45th airport nationwide
MILWAUKEE, Aug. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- CLEAR (NYSE: YOU) today announced it is launching its expedited security screening lanes at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE). MKE is CLEAR's first airport in Wisconsin and 45th across the U.S. The launch is expected to create 34 jobs and generate more than $2.6 million in local economic activity.
"Our partnership with CLEAR will elevate the customer experience for Milwaukee travelers while showcasing the innovation we continue to cultivate at the airport," said Milwaukee International Airport Director Brian Dranzik. "We're confident passengers will love the new technology and take advantage of the opportunity to travel faster through the airport."
Members use CLEAR's network of dedicated lanes to verify their identity with their eyes or fingers, replacing the need to take out their wallet and driver's license. After verification, a CLEAR Ambassador escorts members through the dedicated lane and directly to TSA physical security, reducing the amount of time spent waiting in line at the security checkpoint.
"We are so excited for the opportunity to provide Milwaukee passengers with a more seamless, predictable travel experience," said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. "MKE has been a wonderful partner, and we're excited to expand into our 45th airport and create more than 30 local jobs."
Today's launch represents continued growth in CLEAR's national footprint, where it boasts more than 12 million members. CLEAR already serves 9 of MKE's top 10 domestic destinations, allowing members traveling through the airport to use CLEAR on both ends of their journey.
"CLEAR's partnership with Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport is a strong example of our ongoing efforts to bring jobs and innovation to Milwaukee County," said Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley. "Their investment in the Airport and in the Milwaukee community at large is just one more reason to choose MKE every time when traveling to or from Wisconsin."
CLEAR Plus – an opt-in membership that provides access to CLEAR's expedited security lanes – costs about $16 a month billed annually, with discounts available for Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and American Express members. Newly enrolling active military, veterans, and government officials are also eligible for discounted memberships, and additional family members can be added to an existing CLEAR Plus account for just $60 per adult per year.
