REX’s new Adelaide to Sydney service is set to take off from 29 June, with the daily flights to be operated by the carrier’s Boeing 737-800NG fleet.
The service marks Rex’s eighth route, and is expected to boost the regional airline’s network connectivity, opening up connections between regional NSW and Adelaide (via Sydney), as well as between regional SA and Sydney (via Adelaide), and between Adelaide and Brisbane (via Sydney).
“This new route brings us one step closer to our ambition to fly between every capital city in Australia. More new routes will be announced shortly,” Rex Deputy Chairman John Sharp said.
Adelaide Airport Managing Director, Brenton Cox, highlighted Rex’s its strong support for the Adelaide market, having introduced the Adelaide-Melbourne route in 2021.
“This service provides South Australian passengers with more choice when flying on our second most popular route, and will start in time for the July school holiday peak,” he explained.
South Australian Minister for Tourism Zoe Bettison also welcomed the new route, saying it represented “another step towards a total recovery for domestic passenger traffic, and an important link to our valuable international markets”.
Tickets are on sale now with a special $99 launch fare (one-way) available until 30 June for travel until 31 July, while Business class fares can be purchased from $399.
