BARIN Members

Whilst all the Dutch-home-based airlines are members of the BARIN, the majority of the members are foreign based airlines, so the views emanating from the Trade Association reflect both, the national and international nature of the civil aviation business.


The association operates under the BARIN identity since 1970. Long before that, under the name AFARIN, the association can trace its origin back to 1957.

The BAR In the Netherlands is one of the larger BAR’s in Europe, with 50 airlines in membership, covering more than 90% of the aircraft movements from and to The Netherlands

Articles of association

The articles of association are laid down in the Statutes/By Laws as per notarial act; and are recorded in the Register of Associations at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Amsterdam, as of 27 June 2002 with registration number 34178623.

International Air Transport Association

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) recommend that a Board of Airline Representatives (BAR) is established in each country where civil aviation is an important part of business life.
