CLEAR receives notice of allowance for biometric boarding pass patent

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

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

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

This initiative represents the first commercially available application of the complete curb-to-gate biometric experience for select travelers, including the use of the CLEAR technology platform to check bags, enter the airport lounge, and even board the plane.

CLEAR currently operates in 30 US airports and sports venues. The identity platform has over 1 million members.
