A report released by the Australian Bureau of Infrastructure and Transport Research Economics (BITRE) has shown that Rex Airlines was the most reliable domestic carrier in Australia for May 2024.

More than 99% of all Rex scheduled domestic flights took to the skies in May 2024, with the airline canceling just 0.6% of its Boeing 737 services during the latest reporting period.

Figures showed that 85.5% of Rex domestic flights departed on time, well ahead of Virgin Australia’s 79.2% and Qantas’ 81.1% rate.

Rex also led with an 82.7% on-time arrivals rate, placing the carrier ahead of Qantas, Jetstar, and Virgin Australia, which all had a rate in the 77-79% range.

The results came just days ahead of Rex’s first domestic flights to Perth Airport (PER) from Melbourne Airport (MEL) and Adelaide Airport (ADL).

“Our staff and crew always go above and beyond for our passengers and that dedication and

diligence is reflected in these latest figures, when you compare us against the major carriers,” Rex Chairman John Sharp AM said in a statement.

“Every time Rex enters a new domestic market there has been downward pressure on airfares, so our message to Australians is, if you want competition, all you have to do is support it,” Sharp added.

In April 2024, BITRE named Virgin Australia as the most reliable domestic carrier in the country.
