Regional Express has announced that it will raise tariffs in all its domestic and regional networks. The airline, which operates direct flights from Wagga Airport to Sydney and Melbourne, has announced that fares will rise by at least $ 10 from Friday, and a larger increase in “lower advertising fares (PROMOs”) is expected. Rex general manager for network strategy Warrick Lodge said rising prices were behind rising fuel prices and overall strong inflationary pressures. “This will be the first time Rex has increased fares in more than three years. Due to the fact that fuel prices have risen by more than 30 percent in recent weeks and supply chains have been severely disrupted, existing ticket prices are no longer acceptable. “,” he said. . READ MORE Rex was established in 2002 following the acquisition of two regional airlines, Hazelton and Kendell Airlines, into the Ansett Group, which collapsed the same year. It currently flies in 62 destinations across Australia and has two pilot academies, the Australian Airline Pilot Academy in Vaga and Balarat.
