Rex launches highly anticipated frequent flyer program
Edited by Travel Weekly

    Rex has unveiled details of its long-awaited and much-anticipated loyalty program for frequent flyers over the long weekend.

    Passengers can now register for Rex Flyer and immediately begin earning Rex Flyer points and status points across both Rex’s domestic and regional networks.

    They will immediately receive 5,000 Rex points as a sign-on bonus if they sign up before 2 January 2024.

    All members will see their reward points doubled for bookings made by 02 January 2024, regardless of the date of travel.

    Rex passengers can earn up to 7 points for every dollar spent every time they fly and up to five points for each dollar spent on selected Rex Extras such as additional baggage and seat selection.

    From mid-November Rex Flyer members will be able to use their points to redeem flights with three flight reward options – Anytime, Getaway and Ultimate. The Anytime redemption option allows members to redeem on a last-seat-available basis and provides the highest flexibility of all frequent flyer programs available in Australia.

    Three Tier Status levels – Sapphire, Emerald and Diamond – will be accorded to members who have accumulated the relevant number of status points and qualifying members will be able to enjoy the Tier Status benefits from early 2024.

    A unique component of the Rex Flyer program will see all unsold seats available at the cheapest reward redemption rate (Ultimate) progressively from 48 hours before a scheduled departure.

    “The program with its superior benefits means we can at last reward our passengers for the loyalty they have shown us over many years as we have fought hard – often against almost impossible odds – to provide them with safe, affordable and reliable air services,” deputy chairman, REX, the Hon John Sharpe AM, said.

    The staggered rollout of Rex Flyer will also be accompanied by new airport lounges planned for Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane with construction commencing imminently.
