Get ready to *clear* security in one minute flat, because Clear expedited security is finally landing at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) on Friday, Nov. 1.
If you're not familiar with Clear, it's a frequent traveler's best friend. It allows you to skip the manual boarding pass and ID check; better yet, if you're also enrolled in TSA PreCheck, you don't need to take off your shoes or remove your toiletries and electronics. Travelers who are enrolled in the program have their own separate lane for the first step, where you use biometric authentication (fingerprint or eye scan) at a kiosk, rather than wait for a TSA agent to inspect your ID and scribble something on your boarding pass.

This is all to say you can breeze past security in minutes, if not seconds, saving you precious time to enjoy the lounge before your flight.
