  • How to Use Online Check-in

    Within 24 hours of your flight departure, you can check in from your computer in four steps or less:

    • Select the "Check In" widget on the homepage.

    • Submit your SkyMiles, confirmation, credit card or ticket number to access your itinerary. At this time you can select passengers and number of bags and make any necessary changes (e.g.: view/change seat assignments and upgrade status or pay for excess baggage, if applicable).

    • Print your boarding passes if you prefer to have them on paper. Or, at certain airports, you can go paperless and have an eBoarding Pass delivered right to your mobile device. Learn more about mobile check-in and see where it's available. If you're not ready to print, you will be able to come back and print (or re-print) your boarding pass(es) at any time.

    • When you get to the airport, drop off your checked baggage at the nearest baggage drop marked with red "Baggage Drop" signage, or at the curbside check-in station.

    Note: For travel outside of the United States, you will have your passport credentials checked by a Delta agent prior to boarding.

  • Automatic Check-in Now Available

    We've added Automatic Check-In to the Fly Delta app to save you time and hassle. This means if you're traveling in the United States, Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands, we'll automatically check you in 24 hour prior to your scheduled departure. Just open the app, acknowledge the restricted items policy, and you'll be on your way. If you need to add a bag or change seats, you can do that from the Today screen. Don't have the app? Get the Fly Delta app now. Please remember to retrieve your boarding pass at least 45 minutes prior to departure. Additionally, if you do not want to be automatically checked in for your flight, do not press “Acknowledge” when you get the restricted items policy. Instead, go to My Trips where you can see the details of your flight or make changes to your itinerary.

    Automatic check-in is not available for:

    • Reservations that have a delay or cancelation present
    • Reservations without a seat assignment present at time of check-in
    • Reservations that include a special service request or require assistance from a Delta agent, such as wheelchair service, unaccompanied minor travel, or a pet traveling in the cabin.

    eBoarding Pass

    If you are departing from an eBoarding Pass eligible city, all you have to do is present your mobile boarding pass to TSA Security and the gate agent for scanning.  It's easy and eco-friendly! Learn More.

  • Our airport kiosks can help you do everything you'd normally do at the counter — faster and easier.

    Checking in via the Kiosk

    You can check in using the kiosk, any time within 24 hours of your flight.

    • Find your itinerary by inserting your SkyMiles card, passport or any credit card (with the same name as the traveler), scanning the barcode on your printed Delta itinerary or select TYPE on the kiosk screen and enter your confirmation, ticket or SkyMiles number.
    • If more than one passenger is traveling in the same reservation; select the passengers who are checking in.
    • From the Trip Summary you can make a change to an earlier flight, upgrade your seats or cabin, check bags, add Trip Extras or simply Continue to complete check in.
    • Take your printed boarding passes and any receipts you need for your records.
    • That's it — you've completed your airport check-in. Now bring your checked bags to the nearest baggage drop (marked by a red Baggage Drop sign) and proceed to security.

    Did you know if your next or return trip is within 24 hours, you will be offered the option to check in for the flight from the kiosk!

  • Available in approximately 100 U. S. locations, curbside check-in is the most convenient way to check in for your flight and check your bags — without having to drag them through a crowded airport. 

    Checking-in Curbside

    First things first. Drive to the airport and pull up to the curb. The rest is cake.

    • Present your photo ID along with your confirmation number, destination, flight number or eTicket number to one of our Skycaps.
    • Hand your checked bags to the Skycap, grab your boarding pass and head to security. It's that easy.

      There is no fee for using curbside check-in at the airport, but gratuities are always appreciated for outstanding service.
