CLEAR Launches New Lanes at Pittsburgh International Airport
PITTSBURGH, Dec. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- CLEAR (NYSE: YOU), the secure identity company, today announced it is launching its identity verification technology at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), bringing frictionless and predictable travel experiences to Pennsylvania. CLEAR's launch at PIT is expected to create 28 jobs and generate approximately $1.8 million annually in local economic impact.
"We are thrilled PIT will now offer CLEAR's high-tech, high-touch experience, something our market has requested for a long time," said Pittsburgh International Airport CEO Christina Cassotis. "At PIT, we are focused on providing the best possible passenger experience; CLEAR's streamlined security screening process supports that mission. We look forward to seeing our passengers take advantage of this increasingly popular service."
"CLEAR is so excited for the opportunity to help Pittsburgh travelers feel unstoppable along their journey – especially in time for the holidays," said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman Becker. "We share PIT's commitment to delivering the best customer experience and thank the PIT team for bringing CLEAR to the Commonwealth."
Today's launch represents continued growth in CLEAR's national footprint, where it serves a total of 56 airports and nearly 19 million Members. CLEAR already serves 9 of PIT's top 10 domestic destinations, allowing Members traveling through PIT to use CLEAR on both ends of their journey. Members use CLEAR's network of dedicated lanes to verify their identity with their eyes or fingerprint, 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, saving them time waiting in line at the security checkpoint.
CLEAR Plus – an opt-in membership that provides access to CLEAR's expedited identity verification lanes – costs about $16 a month billed annually, with preferred pricing available for Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, Alaska 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 $99 per adult per year.
