Clear Pass Going Bye-Bye

In case you hadn’t heard, the Clear Pass system (which I’ve mentioned before) is going bye-bye. If you go to right now, you see the following message:

Clear Lanes Are No Longer Available.

At 11:00 p.m. PST on June 22, 2009, Clear will cease operations. Clear’s parent company, Verified Identity Pass, Inc. has been unable to negotiate an agreement with its senior creditor to continue operations.

Although some people weren’t comfortable with giving up so much personal data, a lot of frequent flyers liked the ease that the Clear pass provided.
