The Hyatt Hotel chain has been an ardent supporter of Clear over the past two years. We're delighted that the Grand Hyatt Denver could bring this convenience to their customers and to the business community of downtown Denver.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 27, 2008
Grand Hyatt Denver Downtown general manager, Ed Bucholtz, announces that Clear, the fast pass through airport security, opened an enrollment station in the hotel's lobby. This AAA Four Diamond award-winning downtown Denver hotel, located at 1750 Welton Street, is the only setting in the city's central business district where the Clear station has been installed. Enrollment is being offered for the convenience of the local business community, as well as hotel guests.
Clear for take-off: how to use the convenient, new fast-pass system at this downtown Denver, Colorado hotel:
Applicants begin the process by logging on to flyclear.com. They then visit the Clear enrollment station at Grand Hyatt Denver, where the Clear staff captures fingerprints and iris images. Two forms of government-issued ID are required at the enrollment station. (Driver's license and passport are preferred.) Once approved, Clear members receive a high-tech card in the mail that allows them fast passage through security at Denver International Airport and 13 other airports around the country. The fee for the Clear card is $100 per year, plus a Transportation Security Administration vetting fee of $28.
This unique system adds to the extensive host of guest services and conveniences offered by this award-winning downtown Denver luxury hotel.
The express security lanes opened this month at Denver International Airport. Other airports that accept the Clear card are Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Albany, Jacksonville, Little Rock, Orlando, Reno, San Francisco, San Jose, Westchester County (NY) and select security lanes in New York's JFK, LaGuardia and Newark Airports. Clear lanes will open in a few weeks at Ronald Regan and Dulles airports in Washington, DC, and Oakland (CA) International Airport. Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport has announced plans to launch a Fast Pass program soon, and Clear has submitted a proposal to them.
The Clear enrollment station's hours of operation at Grand Hyatt's downtown Denver Colorado hotel are from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. In Denver, enrollment stations can also be found at Hyatt Regency Tech Center and Denver International Airport.
"In this fast-paced world, having easy and quick access to travel is a real convenience. We are pleased to work with Clear on this innovative program and to offer this cutting-edge technology to our valued clientele," commented Ed Bucholtz.
Clear Senior Vice President Allison Beer said, "The Hyatt Hotel chain has been an ardent supporter of Clear over the past two years. We're delighted that the Grand Hyatt Denver could bring this convenience to their customers and to the business community of downtown Denver."
With over 90,000 enrollments nationwide Clear is the largest airport security fast-pass program in the United States. It began operation in July 2005.
