Holland Aerolines operated schedulded passenger services from Rotterdam Airport from March 1986 untill December 1987. From 1982 it was already active with charter and packetservices, using a single GAF N-24 Nomad and a few Piper PA-31 Navajo's. On the scheduled passenger services two GAF N-24 Nomad's and three ATR 42's were used. They were mainly used on the routes to Southend and Norwich the Nomad's were used and to Orly and Charles de Gaulle, Paris and to Hamburg and Frankfurt the ATR-42's.

The Nomad's were a surprising choice. Holland Aero Lines was the only airline that flew this type in Europe. They were bought for a low price in the USA. The maintenance was difficult and therefore relatively expensive. The PH-ATR was one of the three ATR 42's in the airlines' fleet. In 1986 and 1987 they were mainly used on the routes to Orly and Charles de Gaulle, Paris and to Hamburg and Frankfurt. When Holland Aero Lines went bankrupt the ATR-42 were sold to Transport A√©rien Transr√©gional, France.
