Clear, the company that provided faster screening for travelers who agreed to background checks, has emerged from bankruptcy and is aggressively expanding, writes Joe Sharkey. Its new owners, along with the American Association of Airport Executives and the U.S. Travel Association, have sent a proposal to the Transportation Security Administration under which Clear's existing members would be eligible for screening under programs such as the federal PreCheck program. Caryn Seidman Becker, the company's chief executive, says airports have an incentive to work with Clear because it shares its membership fees with the airports.
