CLEAR biometric technology deployed at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport
CLEAR announced this week that travelers at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) will now be able to use the CLEAR biometric identity membership platform to verify their identity. CLE is the 42nd location and 28th airport in CLEAR’s nationwide network.
CLEAR is available in the Central and South Checkpoints. Travelers will now be able to use CLEAR to verify their identity with just the tap of a finger or blink of an eye before moving to physical security screening.
This July, CLEAR will also be available at Progressive Field during the 2019 All Star Week through its partnership with Major League Baseball, providing fans with seamless entry into the Midsummer Classic.
“We are thrilled to have a new, convenient way for our guests to travel with ease at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport,” said Airport Director Robert Kennedy. “Adding CLEAR gives our guests more options for getting through security quickly.”
Earlier this month CLEAR introduced biometric boarding with Delta Air Lines at 26 US airports. CLEAR members traveling on Delta with a linked SkyMiles account can now confirm their identity and boarding pass information using fingerprint or iris recognition technology at the airport security checkpoint instead of an ID or boarding pass.
More than three million CLEAR members enjoy secure and frictionless experiences at airports and sports stadiums in the United States. CLEAR is certified as Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
In January CLEAR announced a new round of financing from funds and accounts advised by T. Rowe Price Associates and Revolution Growth. This new investment will accelerate the continued expansion of CLEAR’s platform and its airport and stadium network into new verticals.
