TWA plans Atlantic flights in '85 with two-engine craft

Trans World Airlines said Wednesday it plans to begin flights across the Atlantic in April with two-engine Boeing 767s, instead of the three- or four-engine jumbo jets now in use. Federal rules require twin-engine planes to fly within 60 minutes of a suitable airport, but TWA expects approval soon of a rule change that would increase the airport limit to 90 or 120 minutes.

The Federal Aviation Administration has endorsed the change.
