CLEAR biometric technology deployed at JFK Terminal 4
CLEAR announced a new partnership with Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport that will enable the more than 21 million travelers passing through the terminal each year to use the CLEAR biometric identity membership platform to verify their identity.
This is the latest introduction of CLEAR technology at New York area airports. CLEAR has been integrated into facilities at JFK’s Terminal 2, LaGuardia Airport’s (LGA) Terminals C & D, and domestic Delta Sky Clubs since 2017. CLEAR is also available at Citi Field and Yankee Stadium.
“Accounting for one-third of all JFK Airport traffic, Terminal 4 is the premier international gateway to New York City and we are thrilled to be able to now provide our passengers with the latest innovation to further ensure a seamless travel experience,” said Roel Huinink, President and CEO of JFKIAT – the company which operates Terminal 4. “In addition, with its biometric capabilities, CLEAR will also add a heightened layer of safety and security to our terminal. We appreciate the cooperation of the entire CLEAR team for making this happen, as well as the integral partnerships with Delta Air Lines, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the Transportation Security Administration, US Customs and Border Protection, and our airline partners.”
“Delta understands the value of speed and reliability, especially in a city as hard-working as New York,” said Henry Kuykendall, Delta’s Senior Vice President – Airport Operations, Northeast. “Partnering with CLEAR to deliver a quicker journey through security is an important part of our airline’s broader efforts to provide our customers with a superior travel experience from curb to gate.”
Last week it was announced that JetBlue, in partnership with CBP, has rolled-out its first fully-integrated biometric self-boarding gate at JFK for customers flying to select international destinations from Terminal 5.
In October the TSA unveiled its ‘biometrics roadmap’, a collaborative biometrics vision for the TSA and its aviation security partners.
