Rex launching Brisbane to Adelaide flights
Rex today announced it would begin daily direct flights between Brisbane and Adelaide on 30 October with launch fares from $149 one way.
The new route, operated by a Boeing 737-800NG, will provide an additional 128,000 seats a year between Brisbane and Adelaide.
“Step by step, our footprint is gradually growing as we continue to spread our wings so we can achieve our goal of flying to, and between, all of our capital cities,” Rex Deputy Chairman, the Hon John Sharp AM, said.
Gert-Jan de Graaff, Chief Executive Officer, Brisbane Airport Corporation, said: “The Brisbane to Adelaide market has been starved of capacity and is currently sitting at 88% of pre-COVID levels. Today’s announcement by Rex will instantly restore it to 99% capacity which is very welcome news for travellers.
“In 2019, 875,000 people flew between these two cities. We look forward to growing that number for the benefit of the people of Queensland and South Australia.”
With a vast network of routes across regional and rural Queensland and South Australia, the new Rex service linking the two capitals will boost connectivity for thousands of people.
Brisbane Airport has the largest domestic destinations network in Australia, with 52 towns and cities to choose from, 30 of them in Queensland.
