TSA lines have been a mess this year, causing havoc at lots of big airports, even for Pre-Check passengers.
Now, Delta is taking the issue in its own hands, and will start offering CLEAR access free to all of its Diamond Medallion members, and at a yet to be disclosed discounted price to its other Medallion members.
CLEAR is a private service that gets you through airport security with even more priority than TSA Pre-Check when you travel through the following airports:
And it will roll out at Delta hubs, like Atlanta, Detroit, Minneapolis, and Salt Lake City this summer.
It normally costs $179 per year ($15 per month), and lets you entirely bypass the TSA identification screeners, who have been a bottleneck for the latest jams.
Delta is also buying a stake in CLEAR, so this is a long term relationship.
You used to be able to try Clear for free for 6 months with a Visa Signature card, but that deal ended March 1st.
The StarOne Credit Union near San Jose also offered ongoing CLEAR membership at no cost when you hold its Star One Visa Signature Rewards Card.
But that deal is also dead as of March 1st.
With Delta buying an actual stake in CLEAR, it’s not yet understood whether they have an exclusive deal to offer free CLEAR membership, which could ice out United and Delta.
