Biometric technology launched at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport

14/03/19

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport has launched Clear biometric boarding technology.

CLEAR is available today in the Central and South Checkpoints. CLE is the busiest airport in Ohio with nearly ten million passengers flying out of the airport every year. Travelers will now be able to use CLEAR to verify their identity with just the tap of a finger or blink of an eye before moving to physical security screening.

The airport has consistently focused on enhancing the passenger experience and in 2018, the city-owned airport was named “Most Improved Airport” in North America by Airports Council International. Most recently CLE has added new and upgraded food selections including Wow Bao, Shake Shack and the return of Panini’s.

“CLEAR is committed to making travel easier, safer and more enjoyable for Clevelanders, and for anyone who chooses to visit America’s North Coast,” said Gina Bruzzichesi, CLEAR’s SVP of Operations. “Cleveland is a great city and an important market for CLEAR, and we’re thrilled to bring new jobs to the region that can also help improve the overall travel experience.”

This July, CLEAR will also be available at Progressive Field during the 2019 All Star Week through its partnership with Major League Baseball, providing fans with seamless entry into the Midsummer Classic.
