CVG is the 30th airport to deploy CLEAR biometric technology

CVG is the 30th airport to deploy CLEAR biometric technology
 

CLEAR members traveling through Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) are now able to use the biometric identity membership platform to verify their identity with a tap of the finger or the blink of an eye and get through security checkpoints quickly. CVG is the 30th airport in CLEAR’s nationwide network.

“CVG is the perfect location to launch CLEAR’s 30th airport because they continue to innovate in so many ways,” says Howard Kass, CLEAR’s EVP of Corporate Affairs. “We’re especially proud to have created 25 new jobs here in Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky, and look forward to working with our local partners to make travel safer, easier and more enjoyable for all.”

CVG, which is located in Hebron, KY, is one of the fastest-growing airports in the country and the only airport in the United States to receive Safety Act designation and certification from the DHS, meaning CVG meets or exceeds DHS security standards.

The biometric identity platform is available in a number of airports and sports stadiums across the United States and in select cities can be used to buy food and drinks and prove legal age for alcohol purchases. There are more than three million CLEAR members in the United States.

In January CLEAR announced a new round of financing which will be used to accelerate the continued expansion of CLEAR’s platform and its airport and stadium network into new verticals. The company was recently named to the CNBC Disruptor 50 list for its work in biometric payments, age validation, and changing travel experiences.

CLEAR is certified as Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
