CLEAR to Expedite Security at San Antonio International Airport by Summer 2013

New York, NY:  CLEAR, the leading biometric identity service, announced today that it will launch its expedited traveler services at San Antonio International Airport (SAT) by summer 2013. San Antonio travelers will now be able to speed through airport security in less than 5 minutes on average, bringing speed, predictability and service back to travel.

“We are thrilled to bring CLEAR to San Antonio, one of the fastest growing cities in the US and a major hub for both business and leisure travelers,” said Effie Epstein, Director of Business Development and Strategy at CLEAR. “CLEAR and San Antonio International Airport are aligned in creating the best possible travel experience for San Antonio passengers, and we look forward to welcoming them into the CLEAR network early this summer.”

Two of the top ten most popular destinations from San Antonio (Dallas & Denver) are already CLEAR airports, further driving the powerful network effect for current and future CLEAR members.

“We are always looking for innovative ways to improve airport customer service,” said Aviation Director Frank Miller. “Passengers using the biometric technology can enhance their security checkpoint process and San Antonio airport experience.”

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 can always use the CLEAR lane for free. Military and corporate discounts are also available.


CLEAR uses biometric technology to identify members and speed them through airport security in under 5 minutes on average, effectively eliminating lines and transforming travel. Members save time and stress with dedicated lanes that allow them to be identified in just seconds using their unique fingerprint or iris. CLEAR’s secure technology platform delivers certainty of speed and the highest level of service to members at the airport, while also enhancing airport security.

CLEAR operates at San Francisco, Denver, Dallas-Fort Worth, and Orlando international airports, and at Westchester County Airport in New York. CLEAR has a growing base of over 250,000 members nationwide and has already been used over one million times. CLEAR is currently expanding to bring its timesaving, secure biometric technology (fingerprint and iris technology) to airports around the country. Enrollment is fast and easy and can be done at any of CLEAR’s enrollment centers ( For more information on how CLEAR is changing the way people travel, visit
