Rex, Australia’s largest independent regional and domestic airline, has signed multiple agreements with major travel agency groups this month, including with Flight Centre, Helloworld, Webjet, Consolidated Travel and Corporate Travel Management.

In particular, Rex has signed a landmark 10-year agreement with Flight Centre which ensures that Rex will be Flight Centre’s partner of choice over the next decade.

All the agreements will be in effect at the start of the new Financial Year (FY) commencing July 2022.

The agreements are expected to result in a more than doubling of Rex’s annual domestic jet revenues in FY2023 compared to its current annualized domestic jet revenues with no

increase in fleet size. Revenue on its regional network is also expected to be improved.

Rex’s general manager of sales, Ann Elliott, said: “As we continue to grow our network, our travel agency community is critical to this success and we look forward to working in close partnership with them.”

“These new partnerships are a testament to our growing reputation as a safe, reliable and

affordable full-service airline which is enjoying ever increasing passenger support.”

Rex is Australia’s largest independent regional and domestic airline operating a fleet of 60

Saab 340 and 6 Boeing 737-800NG aircraft to 62 destinations throughout all states in

Australia. In addition to the airline Rex, the Rex Group comprises wholly owned subsidiaries Pel-Air Aviation (air freight, aeromedical and charter operator) and the two pilot academies, Australian Airline Pilot Academy in Wagga Wagga and Ballarat.
