CLEAR’s expedited security screening lanes have been introduced at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) in Wisconsin, US, marking its first launch in the state. 

With this new service at MKE, CLEAR members can make use of the dedicated lanes to verify their identity with their eyes or fingers.

Upon completion of the verification process, CLEAR members will be escorted by the company’s ambassador through the dedicated lane and directly to TSA physical security.

CLEAR said that this new service would minimise the amount of time spent waiting in line at the security checkpoint at the airport.

The launch is expected to create 34 new employment opportunities at the airport and also support over $2.6m in local economic activity.

CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker said: “We are so excited for the opportunity to provide Milwaukee passengers with a more seamless, predictable travel experience

“MKE has been a wonderful partner, and we’re excited to expand into our 45th airport and create more than 30 local jobs.”

With this latest launch, CLEAR further expanded its national footprint. MKE is CLEAR’s 45th airport across the US.

Milwaukee International Airport director Brian Dranzik said: “Our partnership with CLEAR will elevate the customer experience for Milwaukee travellers while showcasing the innovation we continue to cultivate at the airport.

“We’re confident passengers will love the new technology and take advantage of the opportunity to travel faster through the airport.”

In June, Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) installed CLEAR’s biometric identity technology.

It is the first airport in the Carolinas to incorporate CLEAR’s technology, with the launch expected to create 17 new employment opportunities and annually generate $1.5m of local economic activity.
