Don’t let long airport security lines turn you from a jolly elf into Ebenezer Scrooge this holiday season. A faster way through security is now available at an exclusive rate to U.S.-based SkyMiles Members at some of the busiest airports Delta serves thanks to the airline’s partnership with CLEAR.

CLEAR is the only U.S. biometric identity verification platform that uses fingerprint and iris I.D. technology to expedite the document check portion of the TSA security process. CLEAR members verify their identity in the dedicated CLEAR lane and then enter either TSA PreCheck or general screening depending on their status, reducing the overall amount of time spent at security.

Current members are raving about the advantages of CLEAR over the standard security line wait times. One user tweeted, “First time using CLEAR and mind is blown. Literally walked to the front of the long security line at SFO,” while another encouraged other frequent flyers to sign up, saying, “If you don’t have CLEAR, you’re wasting time!”

Delta Diamond Medallion Members are offered a complimentary CLEAR enrollment, while Platinum, Gold and Silver Medallion Members can secure an annual Member-only rate of $79. General SkyMiles Members are offered an annual membership for $99. In comparison, the annual standard CLEAR membership rate is $179. CLEAR also offers a family plan option, where SkyMiles Members can sign up an additional family member for $50.
