bluewhale writes "Tom Randall from Bloomberg news reports : Travelers at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport may clear security in minutes under a Transportation Security Administration-approved program that expedites the normal screening process. Clear Registered Traveler allows passengers to use special speed lanes, forego secondary screening with handheld scanners and keep their shoes on. Users pay about $100 in fees and undergo criminal background checks and iris and fingerprint scans for a one-year membership in Clear, which is owned by closely held Verified Identity Pass Inc."
