Rex has taken delivery of another Boeing 737-800NG, the sixth to join the airline’s growing fleet of jet aircraft.

The 737, with the registration VH-RYU, touched down in Sydney after emerging from the lessor’s paint facility adorned in the distinctive Rex livery.

It will soon enter service on the airline’s domestic network which now spans Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Gold Coast and Canberra.

Rex expects to take delivery of two more aircraft in July and hopes to grow its fleet of Boeing 737- 800 NG by the end of the year.

“We have almost daily requests from major cities all over Australia for Rex’s services and we will work with all airports that are prepared to establish a good partnership with us.” Rex Deputy Chairman, the Hon John Sharp AM, said.

“We welcome expression of interests from all major cities as we are determined to bring our unique premium reliable services at affordable fares to the four corners of Australia delivered with our trademark country hospitality,” he said.
