REX is offering $49 airfares SYD-MEL

REX is offering $49 airfares SYD-MEL. This comes as great news to the many South East residents who are planning on a visit south to Melbourne, now able to connect via Sydney. To celebrate the launch of Rex’s domestic jet services between Sydney and Melbourne, Rex is offering never seen before business class fares for just $199 and economy fares at an

unbelievable $49.

The special fares are available for flights between Sydney and Melbourne in March and must be booked by the end of February.

Rex Deputy Chairman, the Hon John Sharp AM, said, “Most taxi rides to the airport cost more than $49. This is a wonderful opportunity for travellers to get between Australia’s two biggest cities on a whim to get over the COVID blues.”

“Importantly, all fares during this pandemic are covered by Rex’s COVID refund policy, which guarantees full refunds for any flights affected by COVID, even if Rex’s flights are not affected.”

The $49 fares include free 23 kg check-in and 7 kg carry-on baggage and refreshments on board.

All passengers on 1 March will receive a commemorative certificate and a gift pack.

Rex’s Sydney to Melbourne services commence March 1. Queensland will be added to the Rex domestic network after Easter.

The launch fare is available on and is subject to conditions outlined on the website.

Rex is Australia’s largest and oldest independent regional and domestic airline, with its history dating back to 1953 with the formation of Hazelton Airlines, which together with Kendell Airlines were the component airlines of Rex.

Rex operates a fleet of 60 Saab340 aircraft (pre-COVID) on 1,500 weekly flights to 59 destinations throughout all states in Australia. Rex will begin its domestic jet services with six 737-800NGs in March 2021.

In addition to the airline Rex, the Rex Group comprises wholly owned subsidiaries Pel-Air Aviation (air freight, aeromedical and charter operator) and the two pilot academies, Australian Airline Pilot Academy in Wagga Wagga and Ballarat.
