Clear Airport Security Kiosk Now In DC

Clear Airport Security Kiosk Now Offered At Both Ronald Regan and Dulles

Good news for all the Congressional interns and political lackeys who are forced to fly coach. You can now get through the lines at both Ronald Regan and Dulles airport faster by powering through the lines like a fevered wildebeast with Clear airport security automated kiosk.

What Is Clear?

Oddly enough, you may not have heard of it since it is only in 16 markets. Clear is a Registered Traveler program that rebooted in 2010 in Denver, CO and my great city, O-Town (the city of Orlando, not the group). Clear airport security works in collaboration with the TSA and TTAC.

Is it worth it? Possibly. In all of my travels over the last 4 years, I have seen only a handful go through the Clear line. That’s not to say that they aren’t busy, because it’s completely possible based on the size of the markets they service to have a decent amount of traffic. I’ve just never seen any of it.

Should I get Clear or TSA PreCheck? That is completely up to you. TSA PreCheck works great for me. If I was still living in Orlando, I might want to have Clear as the lines in Orlando get pretty packed and there’s always congetion. It’s like the wanted to recreate the experience of I-4 just one more time before you get to your plane. This subject is probably served best in its own write-up.

Yes. To celebrate their current opening in DC, they are running the following special, but other do exist.
