Just Days Before Holiday Travel Season Begins, CLEAR Expands Footprint at MIA, Brings Expedited Identity Verification Lanes to Concourse F
(Miami, Florida) – CLEAR (NYSE: YOU) today announced that its secure identity technology is now available in Concourse F at Miami International Airport (MIA). With this expansion, CLEAR’s expedited lanes are now at five concourses at MIA – E, F, G, H, and J; CLEAR members flying out of the North Terminal (Concourse D) can access their gates using the expedited lane at Concourse E.
“As MIA continues to blow through passenger volume records amid the rebound of air travel, CLEAR is excited to help even more travelers across South Florida enjoy a friction-free airport experience,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. “We’re proud to continue expanding our footprint in the Sunshine State and creating an elevated customer service experience for even more passengers flying out of Miami.”
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. CLEAR Plus – an opt-in membership that provides access to CLEAR’s expedited lanes – costs around $16 a month billed annually, with discounts available for Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and American Express members, as well as active military, veterans, and government officials.
“Congratulations to CLEAR on its successful expansion at MIA,” said Ralph Cutié, MIA Director and Chief Executive Officer. “Passengers now have the convenience of using CLEAR’s expedited lanes when traveling with one of our many airline partners in Concourse F.”
In addition to its expedited identity verification lanes, CLEAR also powers the free MIA Reserve virtual queuing program in Concourses D, H and J, which allows travelers to plan ahead and reserve a dedicated TSA security lane time slot for their party. Travelers using MIA Reserve must make a reservation at least 60 minutes before their flight’s scheduled departure time and must present their driver’s license or passport to verify their identity at the security checkpoint.
CLEAR first launched at MIA in 2015 and has steadily increased its footprint in Miami and across South Florida since then. Last year, CLEAR expanded into all four terminals at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport (FLL) and launched at both security checkpoints at Palm Beach International Airport (PBI). In total, CLEAR’s expedited identity verification lanes are available at 46 airports across the country.
