Rex Announces Reduction in Mt Gambier to Adelaide Services
Regional Express (Rex) has today announced that it will be reducing services between Mt Gambier and Adelaide in a bid to better utilise scarce resources amid a global pilot shortage causing widespread disruption across all levels of the aviation industry.
In an earlier detailed response to an article in ABC on Friday 11 May 2018 (reproduced below) Rex outlined its reasons why it felt the criticisms by local officials of its performance were unfounded, unjustified and unfair.
Rex will be cancelling with immediate effect 5 return weekly services between Mt Gambier and Adelaide until further notice: Monday and Thursday
· ZL4613 Depart Adelaide 6.55am, Arrive Mt Gambier 8.05am · ZL4614 Depart Mt Gambier 8.25am, Arrive Adelaide 9.35am Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
· ZL4633 Depart Adelaide 5.10pm, Arrive Mt Gambier 6.20pm
· ZL4364 Depart Mt Gambier 6.40pm, Arrive Adelaide 7.50pm
The remaining 36 flights per week operated between Mt Gambier and Adelaide will provide approximately 61,000 seats per year which will be more than sufficient to cater to the 47,000 annual passengers on the route.
