    I got an email about this on January 12th but didn't see it mentioned on MilePoint that CLEAR is coming back to SFO. According to the email text, it is scheduled for January 31.

    Happy new year! Here's something I know you're going to like for 2012...

    CLEAR is preparing to open in SFO!

    That's right:

    In addition to DEN and MCO, you'll be able to speed through SFO with CLEAR. I'll email youCLEAR's official SFO launch date after final Airport Commission approval, which is scheduled for January 31st.

    At SFO this means:
    * No more getting to the airport 2 hours before your flight "just-in-case" the line is long
    * Not collapsing into your seat sweaty, red faced and out of breath from sprinting to your gate
    * Less stress-- Isn't travel stressful enough?

    We're working hard to speed you through as many airports as possible…these discussions can take a while but we've got even more good news coming next month!

    Hope to see you soon in the CLEARlane.

    CLEAR Opens at San Francisco International Airport
    All Travelers Can Now Speed Through Airport Security at SFO

    http://www.marketwatch.com/story/clear-opens-at-san-francisco-international-airport-2012-05-23

    CLEAR, the nation's pre-eminent biometric secure ID program, launched its expedited traveler service at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) on Wednesday, just ahead of the Memorial Day weekend travel crush. CLEARlanes will be located at every terminal at SFO, allowing every passenger on any airline to use their biometrics to speed through security.

    "We are thrilled to bring CLEAR's biometric platform to San Francisco, a city synonymous with innovation and efficiency. SFO joins CLEAR's growing network of airport partners bringing much needed speed and predictability to the travel experience," said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker.

    Since re-launching in November 2010, the CLEARlanes at Denver International Airport and Orlando International Airport have been used more than 500,000 times, collectively saving CLEAR members more than 17 million minutes. CLEAR has a base of more than 200,000 members across the U.S., including about 40,000 in San Francisco.

    San Francisco International is introducing CLEAR's biometric technology to enhance passengers' travel experience but it also means 85 new private sector jobs, enhanced security, and new revenue for the airport. It also means that additional customer service agents are available to help all travelers, which makes for happier passengers all around.
