Rex launches ‘cheaper than the bus’ Sydney-Melbourne fares

    Regional Express (Rex) released (03-May-2021) “cheaper than the bus” airfares on Sydney-Melbourne service, as “Peak tourism bodies reported yesterday that flagship stimulus programs from state and federal governments have not benefitted Melbourne and Sydney”. Rex deputy chairman John Sharp stated the we will “see airfares between the two cities even lower than the Federal Government-sponsored Tourism Aviation Network Support program (TANS) fare and will jump-start leisure and business travel”. Mr Sharp said the sale fares “will singlehandedly revive a moribund travel and hospitality industry in the two cities”, adding: “Resulting copycat moves from our competitors will mean that there will be hundreds of thousands of $39 fares available”.
