The paid security lines at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport are shutting down.
AJC staffer Kelly Yamanouchi is reporting that Clear, the company that has been operating those lines since last fall, failed to reach an agreement with a key creditor.
Clear members paid up to $199 for an annual membership and it’s unclear what will happen with that money.
