REX: Now with WiFi!
Rex has joined the WiFi generation adding this service to its 737-800NG aircraft.
They are using Intelsat’s 2Ku Wi-Fi systems and have installed it on 4 out of its total of 6 737 aircraft.
This is good news for those booked on flights for Rex’s relaunch of flights from Melbourne to Sydney and Canberra next week. Adelaide-Melbourne gets off the ground from 26 November, and you can go from Melbourne or Sydney to the Gold Coast on 17 December.

Free for Business
If you are up the front, then your internet access is free, If you are anywhere else, you will need to pay a ‘small fee’ after November.
The airline is also rolling out a new Inflight Entertainment portal with flight info, weather and some free TV shows and movies
Wi-Fi on planes is becoming as essential as working wings these days (take not Qantas International and Virgin Australia domestic). Good to see that Rex has decided to activate that technology that came with the planes they bought on sale after Virgin Australia’s near collapse.
