Emirates to start A380 flights to New York, London

DUBAI, March 2 (Reuters) - Emirates Airlines [EMAIR.UL] said on Sunday it will use its first A380 superjumbos to fly to New York, London Heathrow, Sydney and Auckland.

Emirates, the largest Arab airline, has ordered 58 of the Airbus EAD.PA A380 planes, which were delayed by about two years due to wiring problems. It will take delivery of five of the double-decker planes this year, it said. The 489-seat planes will fly to New York on Oct. 1, London Heathrow on Dec. 1, and Sydney-Auckland on Feb. 1, the airliner said. (Writing by Will Rasmussen; Editing by Erica Billingham)
