Get to your gate faster with CLEAR

MileagePlus is partnering with CLEAR to help you breeze through security.

Let your eyes or fingertips get you through security faster thanks to our partnership with CLEAR®. Instead of using your ID to confirm your identity, CLEAR uses your biometrics to confirm it’s really you so you can walk straight to the security bins.

CLEAR is also available at more than 60 airports, stadiums and other venues across the U.S.


How it works

  1. Enroll in CLEAR before your trip. When you arrive at the airport, check in or check bags, then head to a CLEAR pod to complete enrollment.
  2. Use eye or fingerprint recognition to confirm it’s you and scan your boarding pass at the CLEAR pod.
  3. Bypass the line to show your photo ID and travel documents to a TSA agent and go straight to the security bins instead. If you have TSA Precheck, it works together with CLEAR so both parts of the security process are streamlined.
  4. Get to your gate with time to grab food, have a drink or relax before your flight.
