Interflug Split Up

This is another one of those odd topics that came up the other day. I know that in the early 90's Interflug ceased operations due to German reunification. What was the final disposition of their assets? I know I've seen at least one picture of one of their aircraft being turned into a cafe of sorts.

Also, sort of on the same topic, does anyone know what reservations system they used?

I believe that one or two of their A310 went into the German Luftwaffe (Air Force)

Interesting Topic.

I know it's been touched on before...but I would like to know more about how Interflug was integrated into the democratic West.

Routes? What were the international destinations, and from where did they originate?

Aircraft? What happened to the fleet of Russian built aircraft?

Employees? Did they automatically lose their jobs?

They went the same way as most parts of the East-German economy.

Do you read German?

Then check out http://www.interflug.net/aufenthaltsorte.htm which lists the current status of a couple of IF ships.


Some were sold and fly until today, most prominently our "Air Force Ones":

Many are in museums, best known is the Lady Agnes at Stoelln - not only IS she the museum, but also the own registrar's office (how cool is it to get married there). She was landed spectacularly on that very short (900 m iirc) sirt strip.

Thanks for the information.. and I would swear that nothing came up but the odd reply referencing Interflug when I did the search before I started this topic.

Any info on their RES system?
