Rex won the same category in 2011, the Awards’ inaugural year; and was a finalist in 2012.
The Australian Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards Survey conducted over a three month
period saw over 1,100 readers nominate what they consider to be the best travel-related
experiences in Australia.
At the awards ceremony held yesterday in Sydney, Rex was chosen as the “Best Australian
Regional Airline” ahead of three other finalists, QantasLink, Virgin and Jetstar.
Honoured to receive the award on behalf of Rex was Rex’s Chief Operating Officer Garry
Filmer who said, “To be held in such high esteem by our very own passengers is incredibly
encouraging and we are very proud to have our passion for delivering safe, reliable and
quality regional air services acknowledged in this way.”
“We are thankful to our staff who consistently provide excellent customer service with a
personal touch, and on behalf of our Management and Board would like to thank them,
across all 35 ports, for contributing to this achievement.”
