Rex Airlines shows off new planes and uniforms ahead of first Sydney-Melbourne flights

The airline’s first flights between Sydney and Melbourne will take off on March 1, and Brisbane will be added to Rex’s capital city network after Easter.

To celebrate the fast-approaching start date of these city-to-city services, the airline has acquired a bunch of shiny new planes, and spruced up the crews uniforms.

Rex’s new planes

Rex has leased six Boeing 737-800NG aircraft to service its new domestic metro services.

Rex has unveiled its refreshed cabin crew uniforms, saying they “retain the essence of Rex’s signature country hospitality” but are are “classic yet elegant style”.

“We are very proud that our uniforms are not designed by any famous designer. As with everything else we do in Rex, we have done everything in-house, from the design to the selection of material. This is who we are. This is what we do,” says Rex’s National Flight Attendant Manager, Donna Griffith.
