Regional Express plans a Massive Fleet Expansion
Friday, November 10, 2006
Regional Express (Rex), the largest independent regional airline in Australia, will begin an extensive fleet expansion and modernization program. It includes the lease of 25 advanced 34-seat Saab 340B plus aircraft.
The Saab 340B plus aircraft features a redesigned wing to increase take-off and climb perfornace. Passenger comfort is also enhanced with the cabin's new noise cancelling system. The Saab 340 has been described as the ideal turboprop aircraft for today's regional airline environment because of its low operating cost and fuel efficient engines.
Rex Managing Director Deoff Breust said that the 25 aircraft would be delivered and in service by January 2007. The expansion is required to meet the increased demand of commercial aviation in Australia.
