Rex Airlines has taken a huge step towards launching its domestic operations, with the delivery of its first Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft.
The plane touched down in Sydney, Australia on November 5.
It’s the first of six 737s leased by Rex and will be used for training activities before the proving flight for the Civil Aviation and Safety Authority (CASA) on December 5, 2020.
Rex will begin flying Melbourne-Sydney return services on March 1, next year and to Brisbane from Easter. Rex’s Deputy Chairman, the Hon John Sharp AM, said: “If our services prove successful, we will inject up to ten aircraft into the domestic market by the end of 2021. From there, we intend to develop a full domestic airline network, linking all the capital cities over time.”
The livery for Rex’s domestic airline fleet will be released by the end of the month.Email Post to a Friend
