Miami fast track
Miami International Airport and CLEAR cut the ribbon to open the new security lanes on Wednesday 20 May.

Miami International Airport this week became the latest airport in the US to offer CLEAR security lanes, which provide pre-registered travellers with an expedited airport security experience.

The CLEAR programme uses biometric technology to identify enrolled trusted travellers. Members simply have to provide their fingerprints and iris scans at a self-service kiosk and if approved they can then access a dedicated CLEAR lane, allowing them to skip the standard security queue.

Anyone aged 18 or over with a US passport or US issued Permanent Resident/Alien Registration Card plus an approved secondary ID can apply to join CLEAR, which has an annual membership fee of $179.

The opening of the new lanes at Miami International Airport follows last month’s unveiling of a CLEAR lane at Baltimore Washington International Airport. CLEAR lanes can also be found at San Francisco, San Jose, McCarran, Denver, Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio, George Bush Intercontinental, William P. Hobby, Orlando and Westchester County airports.
