Rex, Mil­dura heal di­vide

Travel Daily - - News -

RE­GIONAL Ex­press (Rex) has signed a new four-year deal with Mil­dura Air­port to main­tain ser­vices to Mel­bourne, Ade­laide and Bro­ken Hill af­ter over­com­ing a stoush over in­creased air­port taxes (TD 19 Jul 2018).

“We are pleased that re­la­tions with Mil­dura Air­port have been re­paired fol­low­ing the per­sonal in­volve­ment of the Chairs of both the Mil­dura Air­port and Rex Boards,” said Rex Gen­eral Man­ager Net­work Strat­egy & Sales War­rick Lodge.

Rex has also flagged its in­ten­tions to re­con­sider the re-in­tro­duc­tion of the Mil­dura-Syd­ney route once the pi­lot short­age has eased.

“I look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing con­ver­sa­tions with Rex that will again see di­rect flights to Syd­ney a re­al­ity,” said Mil­dura Air­port Chair­man Pe­ter O’Don­nell.

Rex has also in­tro­duced a new Com­mu­nity Fare scheme be­tween Mil­dura and Ade­laide.

The cheaper $129 ticket price is avail­able on 25% of to­tal seats be­tween the two des­ti­na­tions for ad­vanced book­ings of 30 days prior to de­par­ture.

The Com­mu­nity Fare will also be of­fered for all re­main­ing seats within 24 hours prior to take off.

“The Com­mu­nity Fare Scheme has been a run­away suc­cess ev­ery­where it has been in­tro­duced and we have seen up to 28% of all tick­ets sold on some routes in WA sold un­der the scheme,” Lodge said.

“We are sure that the Mil­dura com­mu­nity will also reap the same ben­e­fits,” he added.
