JFKIAT, the operator of Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport, announced the launch of a free virtual queueing programme at Terminal 4. JFK T4 Reserve powered by CLEAR allows travellers at JFK’s T4 to plan ahead and reserve a dedicated security lane time slot, giving them a more predictable and stress-free travel experience.
Roel Huinink, President and CEO of JFKIAT, said: “This innovative programme will help to ensure that we are continuing to provide an efficient, best-in-class experience for all travelling through Terminal 4. JFKIAT is committed to integrating cutting-edge technologies that will bolster our operations, and we are proud to collaborate with CLEAR to introduce this initiative to our customers.”
“The rebound of the travel industry means more people are heading to the airport this weekend, and CLEAR’s technology is making travelling through JFK T4 more seamless and less stressful than ever,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. “JFKIAT has been a fantastic, innovative partner that has always sought to elevate the customer experience, and we’re proud to work with them to launch our Reserve powered by CLEAR lane.”
To use the free JFK T4 Reserve powered by CLEAR lane, passengers need to visit the dedicated JFK T4 Reserve website where they can enter their flight details, the size of their party, and find a reservation time that works for them. Once the traveller has selected their reservation time, they need to finish the booking by entering their email, and confirming their details. They will then receive a confirmation email and QR code. At the airport security, passengers can scan their QR code and enjoy the fast lane right to TSA screening and security.
Reservations can be made online up to 72 hours in advance of a flight’s scheduled departure. Reservation times are available based on the passenger’s selected flight with slots available at least 60 minutes before domestic flights and at least 75 minutes before international flights. The dedicated JFK Reserve security entry point is open between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. – the security checkpoint’s busiest time.
