NEW YORK, NY (September 2, 2008) – Clear(R), the fast pass for airport security, and Travelocity Business(R), one of the business travel industry’s fastest-growing travel management companies, today announced a marketing agreement that offers Clear to Travelocity Business’ clients.
Clear, which recently celebrated its third anniversary, has established other high-profile marketing partnerships including those with Delta Air Lines and Marriott Hotels. In 2008 alone, Clear has performed more than 75 on-site, bulk enrollments at company office buildings including corporations, law firms and government offices. This on-site service offers enrollment for Clear right in the workplace, making applying for the Clear card easy and convenient.
Allison Beer, Clear’s SVP of Corporate Development said, “This relationship is right on track to help Clear navigate through the corporate travel community, with Travelocity Business’ vast reach leading the way.” She added, “We’re delighted about our affiliation with Travelocity, one of America’s best-known travel brands and its increasingly successful business travel agency.”
“Clear’s focus on lessening the hassle factor for travelers resonates across our client base,” said DeAnne Dale, vice president of Sales and Account Management for Travelocity Business. “This relationship will only increase in value as Clear adds more airports to its program in the months and years ahead.”
Clear members are pre-screened and, after application completion which involves providing iris and fingerprint images, receive a card that allows access to Clear’s security lanes nationwide. Clear lanes, which feature concierge staff whose assistance speeds throughput while making passage through security more hassle-free, are already operating in airports in Cincinnati, Denver, Indianapolis, Orlando, San Francisco, and Washington DC’s Reagan National and Dulles airports, among others.
Clear customers experience a level of predictability, convenience and efficiency in air travel. For example, the concierge staff in Clear’s security lanes ready x-ray bins for each passenger and then help them retrieve their personal items at the other side of the magnetometer.
Clear was recently chosen by Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to operate a program there. Clear’s fast lanes are expected to open this month.
Applicants start the membership enrollment process at www.flyclear.com and complete it in person at a Clear enrollment center, where they have their fingerprints and iris images captured. Clear enrollment centers are located in airports with Clear programs and also at convenient city locations, including New York’s Grand Central Terminal.
