CLEAR members can now use their membership to benefit from expedited security screening at New York/JFK Terminal 4. The move is the first new addition of CLEAR lanes in New York since CLEAR was first added to JFK and LaGuardia in January 2017.

CLEAR At JFK Terminal 4

Clear Kiosks and facilities will be available from the following times at JFK Terminal 4:

  • 03:30 am to midnight for the standard security lines
  • 05:00 am to midnight if you have TSA Pre✓

If you wish to enroll in the program, CLEAR facilities are also available from 03:30 am to midnight.

How Does CLEAR Work?

CLEAR is there to speed up the document check part of clearing security. At the CLEAR Kiosks, you use your Iris Scan and Fingerprint to confirm your identity. Once that is done, a CLEAR agent escorts you to the front of the TSA Pre✓ lane or the standard security lane. Using CLEAR is the quickest way to clear security at an airport since you are effectively taken to the front of the security lanes.


CLEAR membership will set you back $179 per year, although if you are a Delta SkyMiles member, you are eligible for various levels of discount depending on your status level. Remember various premium credit cards offer a statement credit towards enrolment in trusted traveler programs, however, don't expect CLEAR to be covered.

Our Take

This is excellent news if you are a regular user of JFK Terminal 4, which is primarily used by Delta and a host of other international airlines. Even if you have TSA Pre✓, adding CLEAR to it would make clearing security through JFK Terminal 4 a breeze. Hopefully, we will see CLEAR add more locations to the 35 it already has across the nation at the time of the JFK T4 addition.
