FACTS & FIGURES

On February 11, 1944 the Reichspost issued a three-stamps set to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Deutscher Flugpostdienst (German Air Post Service). The history of the civilian airmail transport in Germany began on February 5, 1919. The mail was carried by the Deutsche Luftreederei (D.L.R.), a German airline established in December 1917 which started operating in 1919. The name means "German (Deutsche) Air (Luft) Shipping Company (Reederei)". D.L.R. was reorganized as Aero Lloyd AG in 1923. In 1926 the German government forced the airline to merge with Junkers Luftverkehr to form Deutsche Luft Hansa, the flag carrier of the ‘Weimar Republic’. The airline's logo was a stylized crane, designed by Professor Otto Firle (1889-1966).
