Rex upping the ante with new jet aircraft

Regional Express (Rex Airlines) is adding two new Boeing 737 jets to its fleet as it continues to offer an airline alternative to Australian flyers. 

Rex this week confirmed that it has signed a Letter of Intent to lease two Boeing 737- 800NG jets. 

The aircraft are expected to arrive in Australia in June and July and the arrival of the jets will bring Rex’s fleet of Boeing 737-800NGs to nine. 

Rex deputy chairman, John Sharp AM, said: “Rex’s domestic jet services have been performing very strongly and have been profitable in the past four months.

“The travelling public has been crying out for our reliable and affordable services in the light of the shameless price gouging by Qantas and these new additions will help to alleviate the situation. 

“We are still deciding where to deploy these additional aircraft and will explore all options.” 

Rex is Australia’s largest independent regional and domestic airline operating a fleet of 61 Saab 340 and seven Boeing 737-800NG aircraft to 58 destinations throughout Australia.
