Zipping Through Airport Security – For A Fee

| February 17, 2009

Airport Security For A PriceCurrently accepted at over 20 U.S. airports, the Clear Card, helps travelers pass through security within minutes and avoid all those long, pesky lines.

For $199 a year, you can get a Clear security pass, which allows you access a Clear lane in security. Once you present your card, an attendant verifies your information and from there you can go directly through the metal detector and X-ray, but you get to skip the lines. You can sign up for two years at $358.

The card uses fingerprint and iris image technology to verify your identity. The company plans to soon unveil shoe-scanning technology, as well, allowing passengers to leave their shoes on during screening.

The drawback, is that for the price, there’s only 20 airports that currently accept Clear Cards. To check out the airports that accept Clear, click here.

That’s a lot to think about for $199 a year.
