The CLEAR Booth Identify Travelers with a Fingerprint or Eye Scan

LAX and a number of other airports across the US recently installed a new biometric screening system that is designed to revolutionize air travel. With airports facing lengthy wait times and long security lines, the new system could make the process of navigating an airport significantly faster and more efficient.

CLEAR is a biometric screening system that is designed to identify passengers with just a fingerprint or an eye scan instead of their passport, driver's license or boarding pass. Travelers simply need to sign up to use CLEAR by creating a biometric account. Once registered, travelers can use a booth in any of the 22 airports using the system to move thorough security with just a fingerprint or eye scan.

While the service currently costs about $15 per month, it may be a worthwhile solution for frequent flyers who are eager to save time when travelling by air.
