No more REX flights from April

Following an emergency board meeting on Sunday, March 22, Regional Express (Rex) has announced that it will shut down its regular public transport (RPT) air services in all states, except in Queensland where the services are underwritten by the Queensland government.

Operations will cease with effect from April 6 unless the federal and state governments are willing to underwrite the losses, the Rex board has said. These measures are designed to reduce the number of infections from COVID-19.
