Delta Air Lines Inc. has enhanced its Facebook page to include online check-in within 24 hours of a scheduled departure, according to a Delta blog.

The airline becomes the first in the U.S. to offer the feature. The site also shows flight status and SkyMiles account info.

Delta started its Facebook page in August, but there were limited options. The newest functions also include the ability to check in-flight amenities including Wi-Fi and entertainment. Passengers can also share a travel itinerary with friends and family on Facebook rather than sending a separate email.

Delta is the fourth-busiest airline at Pittsburgh International Airport, 344,870 enplaned passengers between September 2009 and August 2010.
