ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. — ‘CLEAR’ is making its debut at St. Louis Lambert International Airport on Feb. 24 in Terminal 2.

The identity technology can save travelers time from pulling out identification and getting in line. With CLEAR, travelers use their fingerprints and eyes. 

“We’re proud to welcome CLEAR to St. Louis and bring the same safe and easy travel experience millions across the U.S. are already enjoying,” said Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge, STL Director. “CLEAR has been one of top requested services from our passengers and customers. It will also improve the experience for all our visiting passengers who are already CLEAR members.”

Travelers still have to go through traditional security, including the full body scanner. The only way to avoid that – is to get TSA PreCheck.

“CLEAR is already changing the way more than five million members move through their days by transforming the cards in their wallets into a single biometric ID. CLEAR members simply verify their identity with their fingertips or eyes before continuing on to the physical screening process,” a press release said.

CLEAR, which costs $179 per year, will also create more than 50 local jobs. St. Louis is CLEAR’s 34th airport location.

Travelers can begin the enrollment process online and complete it with the help of a CLEAR Ambassador at a pod near the airport checkpoints.  

CLEAR debuts at Terminal 2 on Feb. 24. It’ll be available at Terminal 1 in early March, according to a press release.
