Check-in & Security

How to Check In


Whether you check in on delta.com, the Fly Delta app or in-person at the airport, you’ll be expected to present government-issued photo identification to travel along with your boarding pass. If you need help while checking in, we’re here to assist.

Check in up to 24 hours before your flight


Online

Up to 24 hours before departure, you can check in on your desktop computer. Select “Check In” in the header of any page or go to My Trips  in your Delta account. 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 you download, you can check in as a guest, log in or register for a SkyMiles account. From there, you can add your trip confirmation number and access your trips. When you’re logged in, you’ll be automatically checked in 24 hours before your flight. You can also Today Mode to see your boarding pass, baggage tracker and more.


Airport Kiosk

If you didn’t use the Fly Delta app to check in to your flight or print your boarding pass, use the Delta airport kiosks to check in quickly. When you arrive, follow the prompts on the kiosk to enter your SkyMiles number, confirmation number or eTicket number to access your trip and print your boarding pass.


Airport Check-In Desk

When you’re inside the airport and looking to check in, 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 line for Gold, Platinum and Diamond Medallion Members and First Class, Premium Select or Delta One® 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 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.
