Rex signs three year partnership extending regional fares agreement with Albany

    Regional Express (Rex) and the City of Albany signed (07-Jul-2017) a three year partnership agreement, assuring Rex will continue to offer its ‘Rex Community Fare’ through to 30-Jun-2020. This follows a similar agreement made with the Shire of Esperance which was signed in May-2017. Rex GM network strategy & sales Warrick Lodge said the carrier has sold 16,000 Community Fares “just in the first full year of the trial of the scheme”, and it now accounts for 15% of the total passenger numbers travelling on the Albany and Esperance to Perth routes. Mr Lodge said the carrier believes that the take-up rate “will be even stronger in the years ahead”.
