Online Check-in

Online Check-in allows you to check in for your flight from wherever you are using or the Fly Delta app from 24 hours to 30 minutes before your flight's departure. That means no waiting in line—just show your ID and printed boarding pass or eBoarding Pass at the security check point.

Priority Boarding

With our zone boarding process, Medallion Members are invited to board early on most flights1. This gives you more time to locate your seat and store your carry-ons before general boarding.

Via our Delta Sky Priority lane, all passengers in Delta One, First, or Business Class, and all Diamond Medallion Members, will be invited to preboard (Zone PREM). All Platinum and Gold Medallion Members, SkyTeam ElitePlus customers,  and Virgin Australia Velocity Platinum and Gold members are then invited to board (Zone SKY). Silver Medallion Members2, SkyTeam Elite, and Virgin Australia Velocity Silver members customers can begin boarding after that using the Sky Priority™ boarding lane when traveling in Main Cabin (Zone 1).

1AeroMexico offers priority boarding on all flights except between Mexico City and Monterey. Air France and Korean Air offer priority boarding on international flights only. Alitalia offers priority boarding where operationally available. Also with our enhanced partnership with Alaska Airline members will be offered Priority Boarding on all flights operated by Alaska & Horizon Airlines.

2Silver Medallion Members will not have a dedicated Priority Boarding zone on Delta flights departing AMS and CDG due to Air France-KLM boarding policies.
