Rex Airlines launches Melbourne-Perth route

Rex Airlines has unveiled its latest addition to the domestic route network, a new Melbourne-Perth service – the first to connect the east and west coasts.

Starting from June 28, 2024, the new flights will be operated by a Boeing 737 five days a week, offering fresh competition on the popular route.

The flight timings aren’t great, however: Flight ZL873 will depart Melbourne at 8:15pm and land in Perth 10:40pm, while the return journey Flight XL874 leaves Perth at 11.55pm and arrives in Melbourne at 5:30am.

Travelers will shortly be able to book economy seats for as low as $299 each way and business class for $999 each way. All fares include checked baggage and refreshments.

Rex’s General Manager Network Strategy, Warrick Lodge, emphasized the benefits this new service brings. The addition of close to 90,000 seats annually on this busy route is good news for business, trade, tourism, and travelers.

This new route marks Rex’s 11th domestic jet service, adding to its network of major capital cities and popular destinations, also including Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra, Hobart, and the Gold Coast.

Further route expansions are expected to be announced soon.
