Get ready to fly Rex between major Australian cities

Flyers will be able to choose between Qantas, Virgin Australia and Regional Express when they fly between Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane next year.

Regional Express (Rex) said today it has has signed letters of intent to lease six Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft, which will operate its soon-to-be-launched operations on Australia's east coast. 

The first 737 jet will be delivered on November 1 , with the remaining five aircraft to be phased in over the following four months.

“Three of these aircraft will be deployed in the first phase of our launch on March 1 on the Sydney to Melbourne route, with another two aircraft beginning service before Easter,” said Rex deputy chairman John Sharp.

Rex is already advertising for staff and tickets for the new routes are expected to go on sale in December.

Executive Traveller reported the first five routes Rex plans to tackle from its Sydney hub would be Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Canberra and Adelaide.

"These 737 aircraft are well received by passengers and have proven to be very suitable for operations in Australia," Sharp said.
