BARIN Provisions of Conduct

The increasingly competitive environment in which airlines operate, combined with developments in anti-trust policies in Europe, in the US and in the rest of the world, urge BARIN towards firm vigilance at any time in their General Assembly meetings and other BARIN gatherings, whether bilateral or multilateral.

Equal to their international colleague associations such as IATA; BARIN realizes the nature of these developments by covering themselves with multiple guarantees when topics of common interest are discussed

Consequently BARIN does NOT engage itself in:

  • Matters concerning pricing policies and agency remunerations
  • Matters of any other commercial policies between its members and their distribution channels
  • Matters of commercial competition and debate between BARIN members
  • BARIN members or observers are to fully comply with these BARIN Provisions of Conduct, and are supposed to be aware that any discussion regarding such matters, or concerning any other competitively sensitive topics outside the scope of the meetings agenda, either on the floor or off, is strictly prohibited.

BARIN also has links with other organisations which provide particular services for the airline community, such as but not limited to:

  • International Air Transport Association (IATA)
  • European Low Fares Airlines Association (ELFAA)
  • Boards of Airline Representatives World-Wide
  • Air Cargo Nederland – Sector Council Cargo Airlines (ACN)
  • Schiphol Airline Operators Committee (SAOC)
  • Social and Economic Council of the Netherlands (SER)
  • Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers (VNO-NCW)
  • Consumentenbond – Consumer Association of the Netherlands
  • Authority for Consumers & Markets in The Netherlands (ACM)
  • European Commission (EC)
