After years of work and preparation by the airline, Delta Thursday welcomed its first of 45 brand new narrowbody Airbus A321s. The jet touched down in Minneapolis before it’s deployed on routes between Atlanta and destinations in Florida beginning in May.

It takes a team and a lot of man hours to bring a new aircraft to an airline. Here, Delta News Hub concludes its delivery coverage with a visual look behind the scenes.
