Four years after emerging from bankruptcy, CLEAR, a biometric identification service that allows customers to zip through security screenings, is preparing to open fast lanes in new airports across the country.
According to CLEAR President and Chief Financial Officer Ken Cornick, the Manhattan company, whose screening services are available at nine U.S. airports, will enter McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, a hub for many conferences and conventions. The new lanes could open as soon as next month.
The move is expected to add 30 employees to CLEAR’s 230-employee roster, and the company is currently in talks to make its services available in Miami International Airport and Baltimore Washington International Airport.
“We are close to finalizing an agreement with CLEAR,” said Greg Chin, a spokesman for the Miami-Dade Aviation Department. “We expect an agreement to be in place in the coming months.”
An operator with BWI Airport couldn’t immediately be reached for comment Monday afternoon.
