The REX charter is possibly taking the Brumbies from CBR to BNE for tonight's super rugby game with the Queensland Reds.

I came across an article in Simple Flying from 12 May, 2021 with John Sharpe giving a discussion on the performance of REX's jet services. He says that the best performing route is MEL-ADL and the following quote regarding acquiring additional jets is from the article:

Quote:
“We’re planning to bring another four 737s into our system over the next few months. We see the demand for that. We see the need for that because we see opportunities to develop more routes in our network. But we can’t do that without those extra aircraft.”

Rex’s current six Boeing 737-800s are former leased Virgin Australia aircraft. The additional four Boeings will also be former Virgin Australia planes. Rex reportedly negotiated an excellent deal for its first tranche of Boeings. No doubt they’ll wring as much value as they can out of the second round of Boeings coming into the fleet.
If the next four REX B738s are coming from ex-Virgin planes, in my view this only leaves potentially six B738s available, being VUA, VOQ, VOS from the ex-Virgin fleet and VOR, VUB, VUD from the Tiger fleet. At a stretch they could acquire ex-Virgin VUI and VUJ from GYR which as N341CG and N343CG haven't moved since arriving there in December, 2020.

It will be interesting to see which aircraft are chosen.

Hi all,

The wife took REX from MEL to CBR this afternoon.
Said the flight was well serviced, great crew, about 1/2 to 2/3 full, on time departure and arrival.

Funny how as soon as REX come along, the Mel-CBR fares fall from $180-200 each way to $70+....

Australian Aviation has published news of REX signing leases on two additional B738s to take their total to eight. There is no mention in the article of the source of the aircraft but it assumed that they will be ex-Virgin B738s.

The pertinent section is:

Quote:
Rex has announced its intentions to secure an additional two Boeing 737 Next Generation aircraft under a new agreement with a lessor.

The airline confirmed it has signed a letter of intent with a lessor for the lease of two additional 737-800NG aircraft, which it hopes to see delivered in August this year, and enter service in September.
