Rex today announced it has signed an agreement with the Flight Centre Travel Group (FLT) which has significantly extended the airline’s consumer reach and commercial footprint in the aviation industry.

Rex says the new deal is the latest of several new contracts negotiated over recent months by the airline and aligns it with one of the world’s largest travel retailers and corporate travel managers.

The preferred partnership agreement with FLT enables the company to sell and promote Rex to its large leisure and corporate travel customer base throughout Australia and around the world.

“This will give consumers even greater access to both our national, regional and domestic networks and will further enhance our brand awareness,” Rex Deputy Chairman, the Hon John Sharp AM, said.

“It also means we will be in an even stronger position once lockdowns are lifted and borders re-open to capture more of the pent up demand from travellers keen to fly again.”

“Rex’s customer-centric principles align with ours and its dedication to providing vital air services, particularly to our remote and regional communities is significant. We look forward to playing a part in Rex’s exciting growth strategy moving forward.”
