Interflug GmbH was the national airline of East Germany from 1963 to 1990. Based in East Berlin, it operated scheduled and chartered flights to European and intercontinental destinations out of its hub at Berlin Schonefeld Airport, focusing on Comecon countries. Following the German reunification, the company was liquidated. Over the 1960s, the airline saw a significant growth, concerning both its route network and fleet of Soviet-built aircraft. The Ilyushin Il-18 turboprop airliner became the backbone of Interflug's short haul flights during that period. Now Ilyushin Il-18 DDR-STE is an exhibit of the Hans Grade Museum, Borkheide, Germany.
