CLEAR Partners with Aerostar Airport Holdings to Launch Expedited Identity Verification Lanes at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in Puerto Rico

CLEAR is celebrating the launch of its secure identity technology at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU), which is operated by Aerostar Airport Holdings. SJU is the first airport outside the continental United States to feature CLEAR’s signature expedited identity verification lanes. CLEAR’s launch at SJU is expected to create 49 local jobs and generate approximately $2.5 million in local economic activity.

“At Aerostar we are constantly looking for solutions and services that improve our passenger experience throughout the airport. We’re excited to partner with CLEAR to allow travelers to more seamlessly verify their identity using their eyes or fingers. By avoiding the need to use traditional identification documents, CLEAR’s service will help save people time and stress at the security checkpoint – especially during the busy holiday travel season,” said Aerostar President Jorge Hernández.

The launch represents continued growth in CLEAR’s footprint, where it serves a total of 47 airports and boasts 14+ million members. CLEAR already serves 8 of SJU’s top 10 U.S. destinations, allowing members traveling through SJU to use CLEAR on both ends of their journey. Members use CLEAR’s network of dedicated lanes to verify their identity with their eyes or fingers, replacing the need to take out their wallet and driver’s license. After verification, a CLEAR Ambassador escorts members through the dedicated lane and directly to TSA physical security, reducing the amount of time spent waiting in line at the security checkpoint.

“CLEAR is excited to bring our secure identity technology to Puerto Rico, create good-paying local jobs and invest in the local economy,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. “Aerostar has been a great partner, and we’re pleased to work together to create a more predictable, less stressful airport experience for people traveling through SJU.”

In celebration of the launch, CLEAR will also make a donation to Hurricane Fiona relief efforts on behalf of members who enroll and verify at SJU during November, up to $10,000. Enrollment takes less than five minutes and can be done with the help of a CLEAR Ambassador at any pod at SJU; verifications can only be done with a valid same-day boarding pass.

CLEAR Plus – an opt-in membership that provides access to CLEAR’s expedited security lanes – costs about $16 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 memberships, and additional family members can be added to an existing CLEAR Plus account for just $60 per adult per year.
