Rex connects passengers to the US with Delta partnership

Rex Airlines and Delta Air Lines have teamed up to streamline the travel experience for passengers flying between Australia and the US.

The two airlines have launched an interline service agreement that will enable Rex Passengers travelling to the US easy access to 40 cities and in turn Delta passengers travelling from the US, Canada and Mexico will have access to Rex’s domestic connections to 58 destinations throughout Australia.

Passengers will be able to book all flights, including connecting flights, under one booking, with a single baggage drop where permitted.

Rex deputy chairman, John Sharp said the agreement will make it easier for Australians to visit the US allowing customers to connect to Delta Air Lines’ US network.

“We are proud to enhance our services to our ever-increasing loyal customers by offering seamless connections from our regional and domestic ports to a quality international carrier such as Delta Air Lines,” Sharp said.

Delta’s head of sales for Australia and New Zealand, Nicole Bennett added: “We are excited to be expanding the domestic Australian relationship with Rex Airlines to enable our customers to connect seamlessly to our daily Sydney – Los Angeles flight.”

“This service will increase to 10 flights per week from 18 December flying our flagship A350.”

On Monday, Rex’s executive chairman, Lim Kim Hai announced the airline’s domestic operations had returned to profit for the first time since resuming operations in February.

For the first three months of this financial year, Rex’s domestic jet network passenger numbers grew by 60 per cent, 34 per cent and 77 per cent respectively when compared to June 2022.

Revenue growth has been even stronger at 84 per cent, 47 per cent, and 137 per cent for the same three months, suggesting significant yield improvements, according to Rex executive chairman, Lim Kim Hai.
