Rex Launches Port Augusta Services

Regional Express (Rex) will launch its new air service between Port Augusta and Adelaide on Monday 11 September 2017.

Rex was awarded the route license to operate passenger air services following an expression of interest by the South Australian government after the previous operator exited the route in May this year.

Rex will operate three return services per week on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, providing up to 10,000 seats a year. The flight schedule is available in the Annex.

The service will also extend through to Coober Pedy which means that for the first time, there will be air services linking Port Augusta to Coober Pedy, significantly enhancing the connectivity of these two cities for business, government, mining, and tourism related travel.

Regional Express Network Strategy & Sales Manager Mr. Warrick Lodge said:

“Rex looks forward to building a strong partnership with the South Australian Government, Port Augusta City Council and the Port Augusta community to ensure we can continue to provide a sustainable air service for the long-term benefit of the region.”

Rex’s commencement of services on the Port Augusta route has been well-received by the local community.

Port Augusta Mayor Mr. Sam Johnson said:

“We welcome Rex and thank them for their contribution and support. This is a positive sign that exciting times are upon us, with reputable companies such as Rex Airlines making an investment in a growing and expanding region.”
