Australian carrier Rex has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with a lessor for the lease of two Boeing 737-800NGs. The two aircraft are expected to arrive in late August, increasing its 737 fleet to eight, and are scheduled to enter service on Rex’s domestic network in September.

Rex’s Deputy Chairman, the Hon John Sharp AM, said, “It was only in November last year that we confirmed financing for Rex’s foray into the domestic market and within six months we have already obtained approval for the jet operations on our Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC), recruited and trained crews and engineers, procured six aircraft, and started operations on five domestic routes, with the first services commencing on March 1, 2021.
