Rex Airlines announces new route between Perth and Adelaide starting June 2024

Taras Vyshnya /

Australian regional airline Rex announced the launch of its 12th domestic route with direct flights between Perth Airport (PER) and Adelaide Airport (ADL). 

The route will be flown by the airline’s Embraer E-190 jets, operated by its group member, National Jet Express (NJE).

National Jet Express is an Australian charter airline and aviation services provider with headquarters in Perth. 

“This is terrific news for Perth and Adelaide travelers because more operators means more

competition but in the case of Rex, it also means better service and reliability,” NJE Director Anthony Gibara said in a statement.

Gibara also added that Virgin Australia and Qantas canceled almost 85 Perth to Adelaide flights in the first four months of 2024. 

“Just 56 % of its [Virgin’s] flights arrived on time during that period, while its on time departures

were only slightly better at 59 %. Travelers deserve better and they will get it with Rex,” Gibara said, adding that the airline intends to increase the number of services once it has established the route. 

“Rex has been a wonderful supporter of the Adelaide market, including regional links, for

many years, and today’s announcement builds on the introduction of services from Adelaide

to Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane over the past three years,” said Adelaide Airport Managing Director, Brenton Cox.
