Members Can Speed Through Security At PBI.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — If you’re a member of Clear, the biometric security program that speeds you through airport security, congratulations: you can now use Clear at Palm Beach International. If you’re not a member of Clear — and travel a lot out of PBI — you may want to sign up.
Clear just started serving PBI in time for Thanksgiving. It is operational at both terminals in the airport. If you are unfamiliar with Clear, here’s a simple run down: you sign up, have your eyes scanned and fingerprints taken, confirm your identity in a few additional manners, pay $180 for a year, and then get to the front of the security line much faster. You still must undergo bag checks and the traditional magnetometer — but, you’ll likely be through the entire security experience in just a few minutes.
Here is the official media advisory from one of our favorite tech companies:
Today, CLEAR (NYSE: YOU) announced its trusted and secure identity technology and expedited lanes are now available at Palm Beach International Airport (PBI), building on the company’s continued growth in South Florida and across the Sunshine State. Beginning today, CLEAR will have three expedited security lanes at PBI’s two security checkpoints. In addition, CLEAR is available in eight of PBI’s top 10 destination airports, allowing travelers to enjoy our fast, predictable experience on both ends of their journey.
With this launch, CLEAR is located in 39 airports nationwide, including four major Florida airports: PBI, Miami International Airport (MIA), Orlando International Airport (MCO), and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL).
Members are able to use CLEAR’s network of dedicated lanes to verify their identity simply by using their eyes, replacing the need to take out your wallet and driver’s license. After verification, a CLEAR Ambassador escorts members through the dedicated lane and directly to TSA physical security.
Today’s announcement will mean the creation of more than 30 new jobs and an overall economic impact of upwards of $1.9 million for the Palm Beach International Airport and Palm Beach County.
“PBI is known for an easy, convenient traveling experience and bringing CLEAR lanes with touchless technology provides our travelers additional peace of mind as they depart the Palm Beaches,” said Palm Beach County Department of Airports Director Laura Beebe. “We are confident our passengers will appreciate CLEAR lanes and are looking forward to a great partnership ahead.”
“We’ve been committed to Florida since day one with our first airport launch, and now we are thrilled to partner with Palm Beach County to help bring this experience to local residents, travelers and visitors. We’re expanding our presence in South Florida and bringing with us over 30 new jobs to the area as part of our ongoing investment throughout the state,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker.
