Rex continues flights into Moruya, for now

Rex Airlines has confirmed it will continue its Sydney-Moruya flight schedule for now.

This follows the airline’s withdrawal from the Sydney-Merimbula route on Friday, and Qantas announcing plans to fly into Merimbula from December.

Eurobodalla Council’s General Manager Dr Catherine Dale said Rex were considering their options.

“We’ve spoken with Rex this afternoon and that conversation will continue in the coming days as they work through how this new situation might impact Moruya flights,” she said.

The Council owns Moruya Airport, and the partnership struck between the two organisations in 2015 had seen passenger numbers grow by 20 percent until Covid travel restrictions hit in March. Nineteen flights per week are down to three.

“We have a very positive partnership with the airline that resulted in increased passenger capacity and lower fares for the Moruya route,” Dr Dale said.

“Pre-Covid, Rex were offering daily return flights that allowed residents, business travellers and medical professionals to get to and from Sydney in a day. We look forward to that essential service continuing as we establish the new normal,” Dr Dale said.
