Allowance for CLEAR biometric boarding pass patent

CLEAR said the US Patent and Trademark Office issued it a Notice of Allowance related to a patent application covering biometric boarding pass technologies.

CLEAR said the patent application covers a biometric solution that enables end-to-end access throughout an airport without producing ID or boarding pass information.

“We are very excited about this patent and the technology we are bringing to the marketplace,” said Caryn Seidman Becker, CLEAR CEO.

“CLEAR piloted this solution in 2015 at San Jose International Airport (SJC) and received extremely positive customer feedback.

“We have created a travel experience where you never have to break stride or take anything from your pockets to go from curb-to-gate.”

CLEAR said Delta Air Lines recently announced a pilot program leveraging CLEAR’s now patented technology at Reagan National Airport (DCA).
