Reservation pilot launches at MCO

Passengers departing Orlando International Airport will be able to reserve their spot in security screening lines before pre-arrival as part of a newly launched pilot.

The “Reservation Lane powered by Clear” is a complimentary travel management experience and marks the second time biometric specialists Clear has picked Orlando International Airport (MCO) for a pilot programme. Clear Plus lanes were nationally debuted at the Florida airport in 2010.

“Since the very beginning, Orlando International Airport leaders have guided growth and development of Central Florida’s main airport to include innovative technology and to enhance the travel experience,” said Brian Engle, director of customer experience for the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.

Passengers looking to take advantage of the new service should visit reserve.clearme.com. Once there, travellers will enter flight details and the number of people in the travelling party before seeing a limited number of reservation times available. Reservations will be confirmed with a QR code used to expedite the security process by allowing the travellers involved to gain priority access to TSA security and screening.

The pilot currently operates 5-11am and is subject to change based on demand.

“The travel experience can be unpredictable – from the moment you step outside your door to the moment you arrive at your destination,” said Caryn Seidman-Becker, Clear CEO. “We are excited to offer this new experience alongside Orlando International Airport and help give their travellers more predictability and more control over their time.”
