The REX media release gives no further information on the source of the additional two B738s. We'll have to wait for the rumour mill!

Executive Traveller is saying that the two additional B738s are expected to be ex-Virgin aircraft:

Quote:
Like Rex's first six Boeing 737 jets, these next two are expected to have been previously flown by Virgin Australia and returned to leasing firms as part of Virgin's downsizing in late 2020, after the collapsed airline was rescued and rebooted under the private ownership of US-based Bain Capital.

I have sort of replied to this one in the Virgin thread.

Cheers.

Does that mean the two 738's are VUI & VUJ ?

* Just read the other thread (and I thought so).

Yes Steve, it looks as though the two B738s will be N341CG & N343CG currently in storage at GYR in the US. They were VH-VUI & VUJ when flying for Virgin.

Rex have suspended 737 ops as well as many regional flights immediately, although in reality in the case of the 737s it was last Sunday.

Mark,

I read that they were only flying in WA and all other flights were suspended due to the lockdowns

This the pertinent paragraph from the official REX media release which is pretty vague and refers to all states where REX operates except WA.

Quote:
Domestic and Regional routes on Rex’s network in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Queensland and Tasmania will be either temporarily suspended or greatly reduced until the end of the State Government imposed border closures and/or lockdowns.
