Delta has expanded its Digital ID option for travelers at LAX, LGA, and JFK at TSA checkpoints. Now eligible travelers will no longer be required to show a physical ID or boarding pass when clearing security.

In order to be eligible you must have:

  • Have a TSA PreCheck® membership
  • Have passport information and a Known Traveler Number stored in their Delta profile
  • Have a (free) SkyMiles membership
  • Have the Fly Delta app

Per Delta,

Debuted in 2021 at the airline’s Detroit and Atlanta hubs, Delta Digital ID provides customers with a seamless, hands-free way to navigate the airport. Now, this industry-leading technology — developed in close partnership with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) — is expanding to three key coastal hubs.  

Delta Digital ID uses biometric facial matching to eliminate the need for an agent-facilitated document check, allowing customers to move through bag drop and security checkpoints with more convenience and ease.

Eligible customers can always opt into Digital ID via their SkyMiles profile on A passport and/or Known Traveler Number will need to be stored in the customer’s SkyMiles profile before they’re able to opt in.

Delta has recently expanded Digital ID at LAX, LGA, and JFK, and hopes to add additional hubs in 2024. Having recently used Digital ID for the firs time at LAX, it was a seamless process, with a much shorter line than PreCheck or CLEAR.
