Rex Airlines today confirms that it has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to lease two Boeing 737- 800NG jets.

The two aircraft are expected to arrive in Australia in June and July 2023. The arrival of these jets will bring Rex’s fleet of Boeing 737-800NGs to nine.

Rex Deputy Chairman, the Hon John Sharp AM, said, “Rex’s domestic jet services have been performing very strongly and have been profitable in the past four months.

“The travelling public has been crying out for our reliable and affordable services in the light of the shameless price gouging by Qantas and these new additions will help to alleviate the situation.

“We are still deciding where to deploy these additional aircraft and will explore all options.”
