Clear, a company that provides expedited access to airport security checkpoints, said it received a Notice of Allowance for its patent on biometric boarding pass technologies.

The company said the patent covers “a biometric solution that enables end-to-end access throughout an airport without producing ID or boarding pass information.”

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issues a Notice of Allowance when it intends to issue a patent. Clear must now complete two additional steps, namely pay the required issue fee and submit final drawings.

Clear piloted the biometric boarding pass at San Jose International Airport in 2015 and Delta is planning a pilot program at Washington Reagan National Airport that will cover checking bags, lounge access, and boarding.
