Rex is delighted to announce the appointment of Ann Elliott to the role of General Manager Sales with effect from 7 December 2020.

Ann comes to Rex with more than 32 years in the airline and travel agency industry. She has broad experience, most recently leading a Global Sales team covering Corporate and Industry Sales, Sales Support, Group Sales and Business Resilience. Her last position was as General Manager ANZ Sales with Virgin Australia.

Ann started her career in Armidale NSW, working in a local travel agency. She has worked overseas and in various states around Australia. Now she is coming back to her country origins to work with Rex.

Ann will lead Rex’s sales team as it embarks on the airline’s historic domestic expansion, starting with the $79 ticket offer for the Melbourne Sydney route, with 100,000 tickets available at that price.

“I am thrilled to be starting at Rex at such a challenging and exciting time. I look forward to working for a company that is so highly regarded all over Australia and that has such a solid track record with more accumulated absolute profits in the past 12 years than even Qantas,” Ann said.

Rex’s first Sydney to Melbourne return flights take off on 1 March 2021. Brisbane services will be added after Easter.
