So, just to clarify, the B738 in Wagga which is the previous VH-VUF is being re-registered VH-RQG and not the flagship rego VH-REX?

I love the Bunnings Trade protection material on the leading edge. A great advertisement.

The remaining four ex Virgin B738s destined for REX (VH-VOM, VUU, VUV & BZG) are all still in CGK.

VH-RQC (ex VH-VOP) operated a 24 minute flight east of SYD as ZL1951 on Friday 22/1/21. It is its first flight since arriving from CGK via BNE on 24/12/20.

Then in this case I have a feeling that VH-VOM will become VH-REX.

It appears that Rex may be logically registering them in order of alphabet and age ie:

VH-VOM = VH-REX
VH-VOP = VH-RQC
VH-VUF = VH-RQG
VH-VUU = VH-RQP
VH-VUV = VH-RQS
VH-BZG = unknown as yet

I may be wrong - be we will see.

As REX will be launching jet services with three aircraft, I think that VH-REX will be the aircraft to operate the first service, baring a last minute technical issue requiring a replacement aircraft. Therefore REX should be the next aircraft to be re-registered, whichever one it will be. I'll back your logic for it being VOM, Steve.

Rex gears up for domestic launch, announces Aus Day flypast

Regional Express (Rex) will conduct a flypast of Sydney’s Harbour and beaches on 26 January, showing off its newly acquired 737-800NGs, as its inter-capital city network launch quickly approaches.

At approximately 10:15am on 26 January, one of Rex’s six leased Boeing 737s, sporting its newly revealed livery, is set to fly at 1500 feet over the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The aircraft will then track past the Opera House from the east, before conducting a reversal turn to the west of the bridge.

The 737 is due to then make another pass over the Harbour Bridge before tracking east over the harbour to Sydney Heads, and making its run along the Northern Beaches.

Rex deputy chairman John Sharp AM said, “It’s a great honour for Rex to be taking part in our national celebrations. Rex will be bringing a little bit of country to Australia’s largest city on its biggest day.”

Meanwhile, as the carrier continues to prepare for its 1 March 2021 launch date of its inter-capital city routes, the airline has given both its aircraft and its staff a cosmetic overhaul.

The regional-turned-domestic airline has said it has redesigned its cabin crew uniforms in a style the airline has called “classic yet elegant”.

RQG is out of paint, also has orange "Our heart is in the country" unlike RQC, which is blue. Aircraft only just out out of the paint hangar, getting its first wash from mother nature (heavy storm).
