Regional carrier Rex is adding a new cross-country route linking Melbourne and Perth.

It will operate Boeing 737 on the route and fares are now open for booking.

Melbourne to Perth flights run five days a week starting from Friday 28 June.

Economy fares start at $299 one way and $999 for business class.

Rex will add 90,000 seats to one of Australia’s busiest routes, says General Manager Network Strategy, Warrick Lodge.

“When more airlines compete on a particular route, consumers benefit and our record in the domestic markets speaks for itself.”

The new Melbourne to Perth flights represent Rex’s 11th domestic service on its Boeing 737 fleet connecting major state capitals and popular destinations, including Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Hobart and the Gold Coast.

Rex will also announce details of another new domestic route in the coming days.

Victoria Government Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events Steve Dimopoulos said: “We are delighted with the news of extra flights between Melbourne and Perth and look forward to welcoming even more visitors from Perth.”

Rex has timed the departure of its first Melbourne to Perth flights to coincide with the start of the school holidays.
