Delta Digital ID

Your time at the airport should be as comfortable as your experience on board. To help you get to your gate as soon as possible, we have developed a unique and secure Delta Digital ID functionality for eligible SkyMiles® Members, with the support of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). 

Delta Digital ID is currently an expanded pilot program located in the following airports: Atlanta (ATL), Detroit (DTW), Los Angeles (LAX) and New York (LGA and JFK).

Delta Digital ID Benefits

With the help of facial matching, eligible SkyMiles Members can utilize dedicated bag drop and security lines allowing you to breeze through without having to take out your phone or wallet. Eligible SkyMiles Members can select to opt in to this program one time and stay enrolled — simply activate this functionality to have Delta Digital ID ready at participating airports.
