image German Cargo Services GmbH, operating as German Cargo, was an airline from (West-)Germany that operated cargo flight on behalf of Lufthansa, of which it was a wholly owned subsidiary. History Due to the then-valid regulations of the International Air Transport Association (IATA),[specify] German flag carrier airline Lufthansa could offer limited cargo services. Therefore, German Cargo was set up as a non-IATA airline in 1977, accommodating Lufthansa's cargo charter operations. Flight services were launched on 8 May of that year, initially using a Boeing 707, and the airline was based at Frankfurt Airport, the hub of Lufthansa. Soon, German Cargo began operating scheduled cargo flights as well, mainly to Eastern Africa and the Middle East. The transport of live animals played an important role in the airline's business portfolio, with the interiors of two Douglas DC-8 aircraft having been refurbished for the accommodation of horses. The airline also specialized in the transport of large, damageable goods such as television broadcast satellites. In 1993 Lufthansa reshaped its cargo businesses, splitting German Cargo into two independent, newly founded companies: Lufthansa Cargo for scheduled cargo flights, and Lufthansa Cargo Charter for charter and lease services. During the transition phase, German Cargo was renamed on 1 May of that year and briefly operated as Lufthansa Cargo Airlines. //Wikipedia

On 12 January 1990 Air Inter, with UTA and Air France, became part of an enlarged Air France group, which in turn became a subsidiary of Groupe Air France. Air Inter changed to Air France Europe following a merger with Air France and UTA. On 1 April 1997, it was absorbed into Air France. On that day, the firm ceased to exist as a legal entity within Groupe Air France. //Wikipedia
