Earlier today, I've watched that video of a German Cargo Services B747. Wanting to know a bit more about that company, I did a quick search on Wikipedia, and on it someone wrote that the creation of German Cargo, as a non-IATA airline, was Due to the then-valid regulations of the International Air Transport Association (IATA),[specify] German flag carrier airline Lufthansa could offer limited cargo services.

What were those regulations ?

(Hopefully, this is the right place to post such topic)

Can't say much about those specific regulations during the 70's as i'm too young for that, but my guess is that there was some kind of restriction for LH since Germany was divided into East and West at that time.

During the 70's, Interflug, the east-German (and therefore belonging to the Soviet-Sector) "flag carrier" and kind of "enemy" to LH, shook up IATA boundaries by starting flights from East-Berlin to Rome and Vienna.

My guess would be that LH was bound to the West (or at that time the American Allies) and therefore maybe had some restrictions when it came to flying into soviet areas.
Maybe the trick was to create a new daughter-company but not registering it as western German?

Quoting SpaceshipDC10 (Thread starter):
What were those regulations ?

The Wikipedia wording is too vague and unclear to be very useful. It may be referring to the IATA rules governing member airlines' relations with agents which are quite strict in terms of financial requirements etc. Non-IATA carriers can deal with whoever they want.

In those days it may also have related to IATA-agreed cargo rates which non-member airlines wouldn't be bound by.

Many all-cargo airlines in those days didn't want to waste their time on unnecessary red tape and preferred to remain outside IATA.
