There’s good News for travellers, with Rex today proud to unveil a new interline partnership  with one of the world’s leading airlines, Etihad Airways.

This exciting partnership between Rex and Etihad, the UAE’s national carrier, provides  passengers on Rex’s domestic routes convenient connections with Etihad’s global network.

“Partnering with a world-class airline like Etihad brings a new era of choice and connection for  Rex passengers,” said Rex’s General Manager of Network Strategy, Warrick Lodge.

“Passengers will be able to fly to either Sydney or Melbourne on Rex and thereafter connect  on Etihad to a further 72 destinations across the globe.”

“Etihad’s extensive international network includes Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and  the USA.”

“The entire journey, including Etihad and Rex connecting flights, can be booked under one  booking and passengers can enjoy the convenience of through-check baggage (where  permitted).”

Arik De, Etihad’s Chief Revenue and Commercial Officer said: “This exciting new partnership  significantly expands connectivity options for Etihad guests, providing them with effortless  access from our gateways in Sydney and Melbourne to pivotal destinations within the Rex  network, including Adelaide, Hobart, Canberra, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast.

“Equally, we are thrilled to extend a warm welcome to Rex customers, enabling them to  seamlessly integrate into our expanding global network.”

Rex flights are conveniently for sale on Etihad’s website, through trusted  travel agents and online travel agencies from today.

Rex is Australia’s most reliable airline – with the highest rate of on-time departures, and lowest  cancellation rate of domestic carriers according to the latest government data.

This marks the second interline agreement for Rex. The airline has an existing interline  arrangement with Delta Air Lines.
