Burnie Airport and Rex deliver a win for the coast

In a win for west and north-west coasters, Burnie Airport Corporation and Regional Express have reached a long term agreement securing low airfares from Burnie to Melbourne, under the Every Flight Every Day program.

Up to four seats every flight, every day, will be available at the low fare of $129 from Burnie to Melbourne, or Melbourne to Burnie.

Burnie Airport Chairman Andrew Wardlaw said “We are very pleased to have reached this agreement with Rex as the primary carrier in and out of Burnie Airport to Melbourne.

“The Burnie Airport Corporation has been seeking to strengthen the Rex relationship and bring real benefits to the north-west and west coast through ongoing accessible and affordable airfares to Melbourne.

“Burnie is perfectly positioned as the gateway to Melbourne, being only one hour away. Having a regional airport on the coast provides convenience, saving both time and money.

“This commitment to Every Flight Every Day low fares means our locals have not only the convenience and accessibility of Burnie, but the competitive price advantage. Why spend your valuable time travelling and then paying significant parking costs in larger airports when great rates are available on your doorstep?

“Every Flight Every Day low fares are now available.”
