Boston’s Logan International Airport has become the latest airport to receive CLEAR, the biometric identity service that helps speed flyers through airport security lines.

CLEAR is now up and running at Boston’s Terminal A, home to gates for Delta, Southwest and WestJet.

“Delivering a quicker journey through security with CLEAR is another important way in which we’re giving our customers in Boston a superior travel experience from curb to gate,” Ravi Dadhich, Director of Boston Airport Operations for Delta Air Lines, says in a statement via CLEAR.

CLEAR members submit fingerprint and iris scans to the company, which uses those biometric scans to confirm a traveler’s identify when he or she arrives to the airport security. CLEAR customers present themselves at a special CLEAR kiosk that's typically adjacent to the security queues. Once there, CLEAR personal confirm travelers' identities after a fingerprint or iris scan. Then, members are escorted to the front of the queue to go through security.
