Who we are?
Regional airlines provide critical links connecting communities throughout North America to the national and international air transport networks and the vast economic benefits that connectivity brings.
It is likely that you have flown on regional airlines regularly. In many cases, flights with fewer than 100 seats feature major airline branding and are operated by regional airline partners under code-sharing agreements.
These airlines have their own operating certificates and their own employees. Some regional airlines serve communities through the Essential Air Service (EAS) program. Often, regional airlines are the only viable transportation link for small communities.
RAA provides a unified voice of advocacy for North American regional airlines aimed at promoting a safe, reliable and strong regional airline industry and serves as an important support network connecting regional airlines and industry business partners, enabling them to share best practices.
For all the talk of digital connectivity—smartphones, tablets, the internet, social media and more—the underpinning of the modern world rests on a reliable, safe air transport network.
You cannot have surgery via Twitter. You cannot attend a wedding or a funeral via FaceTime. A manufacturer needs a physical supply chain, and a small business cannot ship and receive goods over the internet.
RAA is particularly passionate about warning against an erosion of air service to small communities throughout the U.S. In part because of growing pilot shortage, 32 U.S. communities have lost all commercial air service since 2013. Another 42 airports have seen a 75% reduction in air service since 2013 and 77 airports have experienced a reduction of 50% or more.
Why join RAA?
Welcome Potential Partners
The Regional Airline Association (RAA) represents North American regional airlines as well as the suppliers of products and services that support the industry before the U.S. Congress, Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation and other federal and state agencies.
The association provides a unified voice of advocacy for North American regional airlines aimed at promoting a safe, reliable and robust regional airline industry.
The RAA serves as an important support network connecting regional airlines, industry business partners and government regulators in bolstering the industry as well as promoting regional airline interests in a changing business and policy environment. By rejoining or becoming a part of RAA, your support funds this significant work.
Associate membership is also important. At the RAA Annual Convention, airlines, manufacturers, suppliers and service providers all work together to tackle the issues affecting the regional airline industry.
During the RAA convention, associate members are highlighted for the board of directors in pre-show marketing materials and are eligible to participate in the Purchasing Forum. This is a great networking opportunity for both RAA members and associate members.
