Rex Increases Flights Between Orange And Sydney

Published on : Thursday, January 4, 2018

download (4)Regional Express (Rex) has today announced an increase in the number of weekday flights
between Orange and Sydney from four return services to five return services with effect from
29 January 2018.

 

The increase will see a total of 58 weekly services between Orange and
Sydney which represents almost 18,000 additional seats a year (schedule attached).
Warrick Lodge, Rex General Manager Network Strategy & Sales said, “The increased
services, as well as the allocation of scarce Sydney Airport slots that go with it, represent a
significant commitment by Rex to the Orange community, especially at a time when the
whole of Australia is facing a massive pilot shortage.”

 
“The additional services will start on 29 January 2018 after the holiday season. This decision is not without its risk as currently there are only 55,000 annual passengers for the 100,000 annual seats that will be available.”

 
“Rex will begin negotiations with the Orange City Council to enter into a partnership
agreement. A partnership with the correct framework would ensure that the additional
services are sustainable and that fares could become lower while ensuring that the revenue
to Council is maintained”

 
“This partnership framework has been demonstrated to be highly successful in the dozens
of collaborations Rex has with the various local councils. A good case in point is the
partnership with Parkes Shire Council where the partnership framework is delivering $99
fares between Parkes and Sydney to the benefit of the Parkes community and surrounding
region. Rex is also working with Parkes Shire Council to deliver additional flights for the
upcoming Elvis Festival which illustrates what can be achieved in the spirit of true
partnership”
