BARIN Members

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 40 airlines in membership, covering more than 80% of the aircraft movements from and to The Netherlands
