Clear Registered Traveler, the security fast-lane option that began at Orlando International Airport, is expanding.

It soon will add Little Rock, Ark., to its roster, as well as Albany, N.Y., and Newark, N.J., bringing the number of airports that offer the service to eight.

Customers pay a $99 fee, submit to a background check and hand over personal biometric data such as iris scans and fingerprints in exchange for security shortcuts at the airport. The program was first tested in Orlando in 2005. More than 40,000 people have signed up for the service, the company said.
