Travelers may now experience speedier security screening at GSP thanks to a partnership between the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport and secure identification provider CLEAR.
CLEAR says that its technology reduces wait times at airport security checkpoints since it is designed to identify CLEAR members using their eyes or fingerprints, allowing members to skip security queues. With the new service, travelers are no longer obliged to present their diver’s license.
GSP President and CEO Dave Edwards said, “GSP is always looking for ways to make the airport experience easier and more predictable. Partnering with CLEAR provides our customers expedited access to security screening at GSP and many other major airports.
GSP is CLEAR’s first airport in the Carolinas and the 44th in the United States. It is anticipated that the launch of this new service would result in 17 new job openings and $1.5 million in annual local economic activity.
“CLEAR shares GSP’s commitment to innovation and customer service, and we’re thrilled to expand our footprint to the beautiful Upstate area,” CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker stated. “Our launch at GSP is the start to a strong partnership, and we look forward to working with the airport to implement new technology and bring customized, scalable solutions to the people of South Carolina.”
Since its founding in 2010, the company has grown to include more than 12 million members and hundreds of partners worldwide. The company’s goal is to design frictionless experiences. The CLEAR identification platform is changing how people live, work, and travel. Members’ privacy is something that CLEAR has vowed to uphold. The company guarantees that members will always have control over their information and that no member information will ever be sold.
The CLEAR program is open to all travelers, and membership dues start at $16 per month at one of the stations next to the TSA checkpoint.
