CLEAR is a biometric-based membership service that allows travelers to go directly to the front of the TSA PreCheck line (if you’re not enrolled in PreCheck, you’ll go to the front of the normal TSA screening line) at several airports across the country that participate in the program. This week, CLEAR has indicated that it will expand its service to four more major airports that were conspicuous holes in the network — Atlanta (ATL), Los Angeles (LAX) and New York (JFK and LGA). No specific timeline was given regarding this expansion, other than that you can expect the service to roll out ‘in the coming weeks.’
