- ERA (European Regions Airline Association) is delighted to welcome new airline member Regourd Aviation Group into its strong and varied airline membership.
Established in 1976, Regourd Aviation Group owns and operates a fleet of regional aircraft in Europe for charter flights and ACMI, and is a leading player in the business aircraft industry in Africa. The French company is established in six countries, has created four AOCs, and has partnerships on various continents. As well as this, the group operates its own Part-145 maintenance facility which will be IOSA certified in May 2019.
Montserrat Barriga, ERA Director General, says: “Regourd Aviation is a fast-growing company group that brings with them decades of experience and a wealth of knowledge in both maintenance and aviation logistics. We provide an ideal forum for airlines to unite and address shared issues and are very much looking forward to representing Regourd Aviation and continuing to champion our airlines members’ interests before Europe's major regulatory bodies.”
Alain Regourd, the company's President, added: “We are delighted to join ERA and see it as a natural progression for us since we have become a key player in 50-seat regional jets in Western Europe, operating under our brand and on behalf of many European partners. We look forward to the future co-operation with ERA members in respect of safety, operational efficiency and good practice. Furthermore, the membership will improve our market awareness and create opportunities to address future market challenges. On a larger scale, we are convinced that ERA will contribute to making regional air transport an even more recognised tool of economic development in Europe."
