In a boost for domestic tourism and travel, Rex Airlines has announced new flights into Perth from Melbourne and Adelaide, which will support an additional 120,000 seats into Western Australia each year.

From 28 June, three flights a week will operate between Adelaide and Perth with fares starting from $249, and five a week will fly between Melbourne and Perth, starting from $299.

Rex Airlines currently flies to major capital cities and popular destinations including Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Hobart and the Gold Coast, as well as Albany, Esperance, Carnarvon and Monkey Mia from Perth.

The new services build on Western Australia’s position at the nation’s Western Gateway through growing the State’s domestic network.

“We’re always excited to welcome more direct links into WA, which will help to boost domestic tourism and increase the number of airlines travelling this route, which of course benefits travellers,” said WA Tourism Minister Rita Saffioti.

“We always love welcoming Victorian and South Australian friends to the west coast, so this is a fantastic announcement and will no doubt be warmly welcomed by industry here.

“With world-class wineries and restaurants down south, incredible natural landscapes and attractions to enjoy during peak season up north, huge upcoming blockbuster events like the Wallabies vs Springboks, UFC, and of course weekly AFL matches, there’s so much to see, do and enjoy in WA.

“It’s been a very busy couple of years in the aviation space for our State, with 20 new or relaunched non-stop international flights to Perth secured by our Government since borders reopened, and of course, more direct flights launched from the eastern states into our South West region.”
