Clear Enrollment Tops 5,000 in One Week; Airport Security Fast Program Hits Tipping Point

Clear Enrollment Tops 5,000 in One Week; Airport Security Fast Program Hits Tipping Point ( Clear®, the fast pass for airport security, announced that enrollments last week surged to 5,254, shattering all previous records of online sign-ups. Clear's announcement of three new airports in Washington, DC (Reagan National and Dulles International) and San Francisco Bay Area (Oakland) sent enrollment climbing in all major markets. Fliers in both markets can use Clear Cards regardless of what airline they fly or what destination they are flying to. Clear has signed up over 127,000 people nationwide at

“With the launch of three major airports in a seven day period, we have seen enrollments soar in all markets," said Steven Brill, CEO and founder of Clear. “Indianapolis hit an all time high on Friday with the announcements. The enrollment increase is truly national and beats expectations. We expected DC and the Bay Area to see major increases but we did not anticipate the effect that it would have in feeder markets," Brill added.

As enrollments in Clear climb on the heels of the openings of Reagan, Dulles, and Oakland, fliers also anticipate the launch within a few weeks of the program in Atlanta. Clear Cards will be accepted in Atlanta no matter what provider the Airport selects.

Clear members are pre-screened by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and, after application approval, are provided with a card that allows exclusive access to Clear’s security lanes nationwide. The innovative, high-tech Clear Card verifies a fingerprint or iris image selected by members during enrollment.

Clear operates 28 enrollment stations across the country and also brings mobile enrollment onsite to businesses nationwide. New Clear enrollment openings can be found at
