    Rex Airlines has today confirmed that it has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to lease another Boeing 737-800NG.

    Following the delivery of the two Boeing 737-800NGs in July and September, this aircraft will bring Rex’s 737 fleet to a total of ten. The aircraft is expected to arrive in Australia in November 2023 and to be ready for service before the year-end peak period.

    “As foreshadowed in the media release of 25 September 2023, this aircraft will be the third of four aircraft to be added to Rex’s domestic fleet this Financial Year as Rex expands its network steadily across all Australian
    capital cities and major towns,” deputy chairman, the Hon John Sharp, AM, said.
