Default Rex to go to 14 737s

Madness!

Quote:
Australian aviation’s new capacity wars appear to be back on after Rex said it would aim to significantly expand its 737 fleet from six to 14 to support its growing domestic operations.

The news comes as new rival Bonza announced this morning it was to expand its fleet from two to eight in its first year, and Virgin similarly said it would grow its collection of 737s from 56 to 84.

Talking at today’s CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit in Sydney, Rex deputy chairman John Sharp said the business hadn’t finished expanding.

“Next year we intend to go to all capital cities around Australia and indeed to include our growth to some of the larger regional centres, particularly on the east coast of Australia,” said Sharp.

The Samoa 737 parked up in Brisbane is due to leased by Rex. Currently completing it's return to service. Will then get a C check completed, painting and a new cabin fitting. VOS will also follow shortly after

I guess VOS wasnt as badly corroded as I had heard it to be!

Where will the C check be done?

Default Rex takes fight to Qantas and Virgin [Jets for REX?]

I wonder if ZL will also take up VUA which is still stored in MEL I believe.

The Samoa 737-800 I am thinking of is only 7 years old so it must have Sky Interior, a first for REX.

Rex - Regional Express (ZL, Wagga Wagga) has been conducting due diligence for a possible acquisition of Cobham Aviation Services Australia - Regional (JTE, Adelaide) and may make a bid in the coming weeks, sources have told The Australian Financial Review.

Rex are pulling out of Sydney Canberra, with all these route changes it reminds me of another airline or two, Strategic & Jetgo.

I think that would have applied more to Link.

SYD-CBR is always to going to focus on business travellers, and many under Government contract. Going head to head with QF and VA (Link operated) must not have left enough spoils for Rex on the route
