Rex Airlines announced the signing of a Letter of Intent (LOI) to lease another Boeing 737-800NG. Following two 737-800NGs in July and September, this aircraft will raise Rex’s total 737 fleet to 10.
The aircraft is planned to arrive in Australia in November 2023 and be operational by the end of the year. The Hon. John Sharp, AM, Deputy Chairman of Rex, said, “As foreshadowed in the media release of 25 September 2023, this aircraft will be the third of four aircraft to be added to Rex’s domestic fleet this Financial Year as Rex expands its network steadily across all Australian capital cities and major towns.”
“Just as Rex has demonstrated in over 50 regional cities over the past two decades, Rex will bring to the major cities reliable and affordable service delivered with true integrity and heartfelt country hospitality.” “All cities that want to be a part of the unparalleled Rex experience should contact us right away,” he continued.
Rex’s tenth 737 is in Arizona for routine maintenance. Rex is Australia’s largest independent regional and domestic airline, flying 58 Saab 340 and 9 Boeing 737-800NG aircraft to 57 destinations throughout all states.
In addition to the airline Rex, the Rex Group includes wholly owned subsidiaries Pel-Air Aviation (air freight, aeromedical, and charter operator), the Australian Airline Pilot Academy with campuses in Wagga Wagga and Ballarat, and Australian Aerospace Propeller Maintenance, a propeller maintenance organisation. Rex is also a 50% National Jet Express (NJE) owner of top FIFO, charter, and freight operator.
