Rex Announces Community Fare for Albury Melbourne
13 August 2019
Regional Express (Rex) and AlburyCity have entered into a three-year agreement until 30 June 2022 that will see the introduction of the highly successful Rex Community Fare scheme between Albury and Melbourne.
The Rex Community Fare between Albury and Melbourne will be priced at $99.00 each way and will be available outside of 30 days prior to departure subject to Community Fare availability, in addition to all remaining unsold seats within 24 hours to prior departure being allocated the scheme.
Warrick Lodge, Rex General Manager Network Strategy & Sales said, “Rex operates to 60 airports throughout all States of Australia and on the back of the recently introduced Rex Community Fare scheme throughout remote and outback Queensland, the inclusion of the Albury to Melbourne route takes the tally of regional communities receiving the Community Fare to 37”.
“Together with AlburyCity, we have been looking at ways to promote flying over driving between Albury and Melbourne, and based on the success of the Community Fare scheme throughout Rex’s network, we are confident that the scheme will stimulate air travel between Albury and Melbourne to the mutual benefit of Rex and the City of Albury.”
AlburyCity Councillor Murray King said the agreement was wonderful news for local travellers.
“Great value fares can only encourage more demand for our air services, and whether people travel for business or leisure, it’s fantastic to support measures to get more people flying to and from the border cities,” he said.
“We are really pleased to further develop our outstanding partnership with Rex, and we look forward to working with them to make Community Fares for Albury a great success.”
