Several subsidiaries of Lufthansa operated BAe 146s or Avro RJs, including CityLine, Eurowings, and Air Dolomiti. CityLine had earlier operated its Avro RJ85s in full Lufthansa colors, and later under the Lufthansa Regional brand. Eurowings‘ 146s were also part of the Lufthansa Regional network, but did not carry those titles because of scope problems. Air Dolomiti operates its 146s under its own brand.

At one time, Lufthansa had also contracted for British Midland Commuter, Debonair, and Flightline to operate BAe 146s on its behalf.
