CLEAR brings effortless security screening to Oakland International Airport

Oakland, Calif. – April 14, 2021: Today, CLEAR announced its trusted and transparent identity technology and touchless security lanes are available at Oakland International Airport (OAK). CLEAR members now have the ability to enjoy CLEAR’s frictionless travel experience across the U.S. at 38 airports and with 100+ partners across sports, entertainment, work, and travel.

CLEAR is a secure identity company that uses your eyes to confirm you are you and help you move through experiences fast and effortlessly. With CLEAR’s launch in OAK and ongoing presence at San Francisco International Airport and San Jose International Airport, CLEAR now operates in the three busiest airports in the Bay Area, all of which typically serve millions of passengers a year. On the heels of last month’s launch in Sacramento International Airport, the company’s announcement marks its continued growth and investment in California.

CLEAR is excited to help passengers and people across the country return to their normal lives. As you travel to see your loved ones or take a well-deserved vacation, you should be able to do so as safely and responsibly as possible. CLEAR’s touchless travel experience minimizes unnecessary passenger and airport personnel interaction by eliminating the need for CLEAR members to hand travel documents to agents during the security screening process.

“Our partnership with CLEAR elevates the customer experience while prioritizing the health and safety of airport travelers” said Bryant L. Francis, Director of Aviation at the Port of Oakland. “We are excited to join the robust network of national airports providing this trusted technology.”

“With CLEAR, all you need is you to open up a world of frictionless experiences,” said CLEAR Chairman and CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. “We deliver peace of mind to our customers and get them back to doing what they love.”
