Delta Air Lines and Los Angeles World Airports have announced the completion of the final stage of the Delta Sky Way at LAX project, which was not anticipated for another year and a half.

The project, which started back in 2018, has cost north of $2.3 billion and promises to vastly improve the passenger experience at one of Delta’s most important hubs.
