Rex Airlines will add a new route between Melbourne and Perth with multiple flights a week.

Starting from the end of June, Rex will fly five times a week between the two cities, adding about 90,000 seats per year.

“When more airlines compete on a particular route, consumers benefit and our record in the domestic markets speaks for itself – Rex delivers terrific value for money,” said Warrick Lodge, Rex’s general manager network strategy.

The Melbourne to Perth service will be Rex’s 11th domestic route.

“We always love welcoming Victorian friends to the west coast, so this is a fantastic announcement for tourism and our local industry here in Western Australia,” said WA Minister for Tourism Rita Saffioiti.

“There’s so much to see, do and enjoy in our beautiful State all year round.”
