CLEAR is not in New York, Atlanta or Los Angeles, which are three of the largest markets in the country. Partnering with Delta, which has bought 5% of CLEAR per this KCTV5 release, would solve that, as all three cities are Delta hubs and travelers there would welcome a faster approach through security.
Here’s how CLEAR works:
I hope that, with the upcoming LaGuardia renovations, CLEAR would end up partnering with the Port Authority and be available at every terminal at every airport in the NYC area and not just Delta’s, but, who knows – the mayor of NYC and the governor of NY hate each other and the governor of NJ is deep in self-abasement attempting to secure a VP nod.
Let’s just pray for the best – happy Friday!
