Rex has announced it’s to rapidly expand its 737 capital city network to operate twice-daily services to both Adelaide and the Gold Coast in a month’s time.
The regional carrier will commence services between Melbourne and Adelaide from 31 March, and then from the Victoria and NSW capitals to the Gold Coast on 29 March and 1 April, respectively.
Rex made the surprise announcement on the day it entered the battle for the golden triangle, with VH-RQC departing Melbourne at 7:21am as flight ZL18 and landing at 8:25am in Sydney.
Adelaide Airport managing director, Mark Young, said the new route would provide customers with “lower prices, more choice and better services”, and Queensland CEO Chris Mills hailed the “improved connectivity on the Gold Coast’s two busiest routes”.
Tickets are on sale now and prices are currently:
- Melbourne to the Gold Coast from $79 economy and $349 business;
- Sydney to the Gold Coast from $69 economy and $299 business class; and
- Fares for Melbourne to Adelaide from $69 economy and $299 business class
I don't think this has been posted yet. simmomelb has posted the Virgin fares that matched Rex on all of these prices, however, but I don't see an actual post for Rex.
