Interflug Expanded

We have just expanded East Germany's Interflug Airline fleet by adding the A310. Interflug has always flown Russian airliners exclusively, until 1989 when they bought the A310. This came about when the trade embargo against eastern Europe was eased in 1988. Poland bought Boeing's and Interfug bought the A310. The A310 has significant advantages, including nonstop service to Havana. With the reunification of Germany in 1990, Interflug was up for sale but no buyers were found, so in 1991 the airline was liquidated. When Interflug was founded, it was under the control of the East German military, and it's pilots were mostly reserve and Army pilots.
