Checking in for a flight has been a ritual since the dawn of commercial aviation but Delta Air Lines is eliminating the process for some passengers.

Starting with version 4.6 of Delta’s iPhone app, the check-in process has been removed and it won’t be necessary for passengers who use this app.

“We’ve eliminated the check-in process,” Delta said in a statement about the app. “Your boarding pass will automatically appear 24 hours before your flight.”

Northwest Airlines was the first airline to introduce online check-in and the Eagan, Minnesota-based carrier made the process available starting in 1999. Mobile check-in has been available since the mid-2000s and Continental Airlines, which merged with United Airlines in 2010, became the first airline, starting in 2008, to issue mobile boarding passes to travelers
