On Monday (October 25, 2021), Rex announced that they will increase capacity and reinstate service on key New South Wales (NSW) regional routes from November 15, 2021, including flights from Sydney to Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour. The carrier has also launched an unprecedented fare sale with no Christmas blackout dates to celebrate the restart of services. Rex will offer three daily flights from Sydney to both Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour with fares from $99 each way. The special one-way $99 promotional fares are also available from Sydney to Albury, Armidale, Dubbo, Griffith, Orange, Merimbula, Moruya and Wagga Wagga. Flights from Melbourne to Sydney or Canberra will restart on December 17, 2021, with one-way fares from only $69. To qualify for the special fares, tickets must be purchased by November 14, 2021, for travel Through April 30, 2022.
In Monday’s announcement, Rex’s Deputy Chairman, the Hon. John Sharp AM, said,
“Our commitment to remote and regional NSW communities has never been stronger and we are delighted we can now help even more family and friends re-connect and allow Christmas holidays to be booked with confidence. The resumption of flights will also provide a much-needed boost to local economies, stimulate regional tourism and help businesses ravaged by the pandemic to recover more quickly. Rex’s decision not to blackout school holidays is unprecedented and I would urge travellers to book without delay as these sale fares will be snapped up.
“I have no doubt our competitors will rush to copy our ground-breaking initiative as Rex will once again have triggered a seismic change in the aviation industry which will benefit hundreds of thousands of passengers. Rex passengers can book with absolute confidence because they are protected by our unique Refund Guarantee policy against any COVID-related disruptions. And they know all Rex front-line staff, including our pilots and flights attendants, are fully vaccinated from 1 November which gives them even greater peace of mind.”
