Regional air carrier Rex to reduce seven NSW routes, withdraw from Far North Queensland route

Australia’s largest regional airline is reducing seven of its New South Wales routes for at least six months and withdrawing from one in Queensland.

It is the latest round of cuts by Rex airlines after seven other regional flights were suspended in April.

In a statement to the media, Rex said services would be reduced on the following NSW routes until March 31, 2024.

  • Sydney-Albury
  • Sydney-Coffs Harbour
  • Sydney-Griffith
  • Sydney-Narrandera
  • Sydney-Orange
  • Sydney-Parkes
  • Sydney-Port Macquarie

Rex will also suspend services between Sydney and Armidale until March next year, and withdraw from the Cairns-Bamaga route in Far North Queensland.

The airline’s general manager of network strategy Warrick Lodge said he hoped the changes were temporary.

“Unlike other carriers, we prefer to reduce the scheduled services so that our passengers can be assured of fewer disruptions and more reliable services,” he said.

In the statement, Rex, blamed Qantas group for taking its pilots.

Rex said it was forced to make further reductions to its regional network as the major carriers, particularly the Qantas Group, continued their “relentless pillaging” of its pool of pilots.

“We intend to return to the standard flight schedules [from next year]¬†however this is subject to the situation improving,” Mr Lodge added.
