Check-in & Security

How to Check In

Whether you check in on, the Fly Delta app or in-person at the airport, you’ll be expected to present government-issued photo identification along with your boarding pass. International travelers also need additional documentation, which can be fulfilled with Delta FlyReadySM. If you need help while checking in, we’re here to assist.

Check in up to 24 hours before your flight


Up to 24 hours before departure, you can check in online. Select “Check In” in the page header or go to My Trips. If you aren’t logged in, enter your confirmation number, SkyMiles number or credit card number to access your itinerary. You can print your boarding pass or get an eBoarding Pass on your mobile device.


Fly Delta App

Make your travel day even easier with the Fly Delta app. After download, check in as a guest, log in or register for a SkyMiles® account. From there, add your trip confirmation number to access your trips. When you’re logged in, you’ll be automatically checked in 24 hours before your flight, and you can use Today Mode to see your boarding pass, baggage tracker and more.

Airport Kiosk

If you arrive at the airport and have not checked in, Delta kiosks are a fast and easy solution. Follow the prompts to enter your SkyMiles number, confirmation number or eTicket number to access your trip, obtain your boarding pass and add checked bags.

Airport Check-In Desk

Need check-in assistance at the airport? Speak with us in-person at any of our Delta Air Lines check-in desks. You’ll see an area clearly labeled for Delta flights, with a special Sky Priority™ boarding lane for Gold, Platinum and Diamond Medallion® Members, and Delta One®, Premium Select and First Class passengers.  

Airport Curbside

If you’d prefer to check in as soon as you exit the car, find a Delta curbside desk located at passenger drop-off at most U.S. airports. Here, you can check your baggage directly after you’ve exited your vehicle. If you’re bringing oversized baggage, you may have to bring it inside to an oversized baggage area. There is no fee for using curbside check-in at the airport, but gratuities are always appreciated for outstanding service.
