Rex-owned National Jet Express adds weekly charter between Brisbane and Orange
Edited by Travel Weekly

    National Jet Express (NJE), a Rex Group member, today announced the commencement of weekly charter services between Brisbane and Orange in NSW for mining and civil contractor

    These services represent NJE’s eighth destination on the East Coast since commencing services from Brisbane in July 2023, and its first port in NSW.

    “We are delighted to be bringing NJE’s state-of-the-art De Havilland Dash 8-400NG aircraft into Orange,” NJE’s interim chief operating officer, Robin Furber said.

    “Rex has a proud and long history of services to Orange via our scheduled services to Sydney.

    This charter service further grows our Group’s presence in the region.”

    The weekly charter service will use NJE’s modern and fuel-efficient De Havilland Dash 8- 400NG (‘Next Generation’). The Dash 8-400NG aircraft has capacity for up to 82 passengers and with its jet-like speeds and modern, comfortable passenger cabin, it has become the aircraft of choice for the mining, resources and construction industry.

    The Dash 8-400NG sits in stark contrast to the ageing 20-30 year old aircraft operated by NJE’s competitors.

    Given the ongoing strong demand for NJE’s services, NJE is committed to expanding its fleet of Dash 8-400NG and Embraer E190 aircraft. NJE recently took delivery of a seventh 104- seater Embraer E190 aircraft.

    The Rex Group is the biggest regional operator of RPT services in regional and rural Queensland with 24 destinations, as well as being host to a growing network of domestic services using Boeing 737-800NG aircraft.
