The contactless biometric security provider CLEAR has launched its expedited lanes in both terminals of Ontario International Airport.
Ontario (ONT) is the sixth airport in California and 41st across the US to introduce the system. Members use CLEAR's network of dedicated lanes to verify their identity with their eyes, replacing the need to present documentation. After verification, a CLEAR Ambassador escorts them through the dedicated lane and directly to TSA physical security.
CLEAR Plus – an opt-in membership that provides access to CLEAR's expedited security lanes – costs just $15 a month billed annually, with discounts available for Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and American Express members. Newly enrolling active military, veterans and government officials are also eligible for discounted membership, and additional family members can be added to an existing CLEAR Plus account for just $60 per adult per year.
CLEAR already serves all 10 of ONT's top 10 domestic destinations. The launch is expected to create 23 jobs and generate $2.2m in local economic activity.
"Expanding our footprint to more airports in the Golden State has been an important priority as we continue working toward our vision for a world of frictionless experiences and journeys," said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. "Our launch at ONT reflects our commitment to our members, airports and communities across California, and we look forward to continued growth in the months and years ahead.”
