In a major development for travel to and from Tasmania, Rex has announced the addition of Hobart as its fourth Tasmanian destination.
With the launch of daily flights between Melbourne and Hobart from 17 August, travellers can now anticipate cheaper airfare options.
For some time now, Rex has been maintaining a presence in Tasmania with regular flights operating to the North West Tasmanian cities of Burnie and Devonport, as well as King Island.
Today’s announcement marks a big leap forward with the inclusion of the Tasmanian capital city into Rex’s flight network.
The Melbourne-Hobart flight schedule has been designed to accommodate holiday-goers’ convenience. Flights departing Melbourne at 12.15 pm will land in Hobart by 1.30 pm. Meanwhile, the return Hobart-Melbourne service will take off at 2.15 pm and touch down in Melbourne just 75 minutes later at 3.30 pm.
This schedule also ensures favourable connections for flights to and from Sydney, Adelaide, and Brisbane.
With one-way economy fares starting from just $79, Rex is offering a full service, which includes baggage allowance and an onboard snack.
Business class fares begin at $349.
This development follows on the heels of another significant announcement by Rex: the addition of two more Boeing 737s to its fleet and the introduction of a direct Adelaide-Sydney route, slated to begin on 29 June.
