Transaero Airlines issued a statement saying it has no plans to operate an Airbus A380 from Moscow to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.  The announcement came as a response to various media reports announcing plans to launch the service.

“As to the information published in some media on the airline’s plans to operate the A380 on the route to New York, we’d like to inform that Transaero has never had plans to operate this aircraft on this route,” the airline said in a written statement.

The carrier, which has four A380 aircraft on order, also plans to adjust the delivery schedule for the planes, saying it is currently in negotiations to do so “taking into account the economic situation.”

Transaero, which is registered in Saint Petersburg and headquartered in Moscow, operates flights on 200 domestic and international routes. Its main hubs are Moscow Vnukovo, Moscow Domodedovo and Saint Petersburg.
