Bigger, Better, Faster: CLEAR Announces Big Expansion to Houston, Texas

August 5, 2013

CLEAR kiosks like these will soon be available at IAH and HOU.
CLEAR, the leading biometric identity service, announced today that it will launch its expedited traveler services at both George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) in late 2013.

Houston travelers will now be able to speed through airport security in less than five minutes on average, bringing speed, predictability and service back to travel.

“We are thrilled to expand our network and grow our footprint in Texas by bringing CLEAR to Houston,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman Becker. “CLEAR and The Houston Airport System are similarly dedicated to creating the best possible experience for residents and visitors to the largest city in Texas. We look forward to welcoming Houston into the CLEAR network this year.”

Three of the top 10 most popular destinations from IAH (Denver, San Francisco & Dallas) and HOU (Dallas, Denver, Orlando) are already CLEAR airports.

This, in addition to the launch of CLEAR at San Antonio International Airport this August, will further drive the powerful network effect for current and future CLEAR members.

“George Bush Intercontinental Airport and William P. Hobby airport serve over 50 million passengers every year, a number that will continue to grow, especially as Hobby expands into international flights in 2015. The Houston Airport System is always looking for ways to improve customer service, and CLEAR’s solution will be an enhancement to the security checkpoint experience for travelers as our city and airports continue to grow,” said Lance Lyttle, Chief Operating Officer, Houston Airport System.

Certified by the Department of Homeland Security as Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology, CLEAR transforms the travel experience by allowing members to use their biometrics (fingerprint or iris) to speed through security at major US airports.

CLEAR membership is only $179 a year for unlimited use. Members can add their spouse or partner for an additional $50, and children under 18 always fly free through the CLEAR lane. Military and corporate discounts are also available.
