BARIN - The Board of Airline Representatives in Norway is the industry association that promotes the business interests of scheduled airlines with flight operation or representation in Norway. Members also include scheduled airlines with flight operation and representation in the Nordic countries.

BARIN represents the interests of its member airlines on any industry issues that collectively affect them.

Our roles include engaging with senior government representatives, their Departments, airport/air traffic control operators (Avinor) and the CAA (Luftfartstilsynet).
Liaison is also maintained with other industry associations such as the International Air Transport Association (IATA), NHO-Luftfart, VIRKE-Reiseliv, OSL Airport Operators’ Committee (Oslo AOC) and Airport Coordination Norway.

There is a Board with 6 members and a Secretariat run by the Secretary General.

Our objectives are achieved by representing our members in dealings with many industry participants, including:

  • Politicians
  • Government Departments
  • Regulators
  • Airport/air traffic control operators

As you would expect of an industry association, most of our work is done behind the scenes, keeping our members up to date with industrial and governmental developments that may affect their ability to conduct business in Norway.

BARIN does NOT engage itself in the following:

  • 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.

Whilst most of the major Norwegian based scheduled airlines are members of BARIN, the majority of the members are foreign airlines, so the views emanating from the industry association reflect the international nature of the scheduled airline business.
