History

The decision was made in July 1994 to make the freight division of Lufthansa a limited stock company. It was the first airline in the world to split cargo and passenger operations in this way. These activities were merged into the "old" German Cargo Services Ltd. (resp. Lufthansa Cargo Airlines Ltd.), renamed to Lufthansa Cargo AG (LCAG) and entered into in November 1994. For quite some time LCAG was the number one intercontinental cargo carrier but was passed meanwhile by Korean Airlines Cargo and Air France/KLM Cargo.


Although LCAG was famous for its innovation spirit, which is still reflected in several interesting joint ventures and subsidiaries, the company lacks a strategy for further development. The WOW Alliance (consisting of LCAG, Singapore Airlines Cargo, Japan Airlines Cargo and SAS Cargo) never really took off and was quietly put to rest in 2006, when the WOW logo disappaered from the various company stationary.


In 2004, Lufthansa Cargo and DHL Express came together in a 50:50 joint venture to create a new cargo airline. The airline AeroLogic was founded in [[September 2007] and intends to operate upto 11 Boeing 777Fs by 2012.[1] The airline will be based at DHL's base in Leipzig and as a result Lufthansa Cargo's MD-11s based at Leipzig will be relocated back to Frankfurt.
