“This is a great way to end what has been an extraordinary year for both Rex and the whole aviation industry,” the airline’s Deputy Chairman, John Sharp AM, said.

Since March 1, Rex has launched seven new routes and its domestic network now incorporates Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast, complementing its expansive network of over 60 regional routes.

“Despite the obvious difficulties I am extremely proud of what we have been able to achieve. It’s always nice to prove the skeptics wrong and the big plans we have for 2022 mean next year promises to be even more exciting,” Mr. Sharp said.

Rex is Australia’s largest independent regional and domestic airline operating a fleet of 60 Saab 340 and 6 Boeing 737-800NG aircraft to 63 destinations throughout all states in Australia.
