Deutsche Lufthansa AG says it will start operating flights between Frankfurt and New York City with its expanding fleet of Airbus A380 superjumbos early next year.

The airline said Monday it will start flying twice a week to New York’s John F. Kennedy airport from February 18th onward, with daily A380 flights planned by April.

Lufthansa expects the delivery of its fifth A380 in time to start the trans-Atlantic services, and it has ordered three additional superjumbos for next year, bringing its fleet to a total of eight.

Lufthansa currently operates the A380s between Frankfurt, Johannesburg, Beijing and Tokyo.

The A380 will replace Lufthansa’s Boeing 747 and Airbus A330 long-haul planes on the route to New York.
