Reserve powered by Clear is a program that allows travelers to arrive at the airport and pass through security by cutting to the front of the queue at seven participating airports.
All travelers are eligible to use the program because It is free and does not require Clear membership.
Passengers simply book a time for security screening, receive a QR code and use it to check in before entering Reserve Lane.
Clear Reserve Lanes are currently available at the following airports:
- John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York (JFK)
- Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Arizona (PHX)
- Calgary International Airport in Canada (YYC)
- Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey (EWR)
- Orlando Florida International Airport (MCO)
- Los Angeles International Airport in California (LAX)
- Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Washington (SEA)
Travelers can access the service by going to the clean website, selecting the departure airport, entering the flight details and selecting a time for the security screening. The service is free, only a traveler’s data is required to make a reservation for a group of up to 10 people.
Reservations can be made up to 72 hours before the scheduled departure time. A 20-minute grace period is allowed for each booking to ensure travelers have enough time to clear security.
In an effort to reduce processing times, TSA is deploying new technologies at security checkpoints this year. The improvements will help passengers get to their terminals faster using new scanning technologies and mobile identification options.
Five of these airports are equipped with new technologies. This means travelers using the reservation lanes at JFK, PHX, MCO, LAX and SEA airports can get to the front of the queue and take advantage of the best available technology for fast check-in.
“The travel experience can be unpredictable – from the moment you walk out your door to the moment you arrive at your destination,” said Caryn Seidman-Becker, CEO of Clear, in an Press release.
“We are excited to offer this new experience right next to Orlando International Airport and help give travelers more predictability and more control over their time. With CLEAR solutions, travelers enjoy faster and easier journeys from home to the gate.”
