EFFECTIVE JULY 19th: U.S. Dept of Homeland Security Additional Screening Measures
U.S. Department of Homeland Security Additional Screening Measures
Effective July 19, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will require additional screening measures for customers flying on international flights bound for the U.S. These screening measures pertain to any departure point where a passport is required to reenter the U.S. Customers flying to the U.S. from an international airport are encouraged to arrive to the airport at least three (3) hours prior to departure to allow time to clear security.
Due to recently-implemented U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) enhanced security requirements for customers traveling on U.S.-bound international flights, we strongly advise all customers to arrive at the airport at least 3 hours prior to your scheduled departure time and to proceed to your departure gate promptly to allow extra time to clear security. We also encourage passengers to check-in online at delta.com or via the Fly Delta app to help expedite the check-in process.
