REX: Regional Express starts flying domestic routes today

REX, formerly just a regional player, starts its new life as a domestic airline today with the inaugural Sydney to Melbourne route.

Using 2 Boeing 737-800 aircraft formerly flown by Virgin Australia, it has commenced the first of its planned domestic routes. It came out fighting offering AU$49 one way fares, and business fare specials of AU$199.

I wrote a post earlier about how Rex’s ‘mid market’ pricing has upset the other two players – Virgin Australia and Qantas/Jetstar.

I should be flying with them today, but with Melbourne lockdowns and some other uncertainties, I had to cancel. I hope to fly with them soon.
