Air services on Rex airlines to Albany, Esperance and Carnarvon have been increased. Services on the Albany and Esperance air routes will double to eight per week, while the Carnarvon air route will increase from three to five weekly return services.
The McGowan Government has also increased access to discounted community fares on Rex airlines by relaxing conditions around the purchase of community airfares, allowing all remaining seats to be sold at community fare prices within 7 days prior to departure, instead of 24-hours. The ability to purchase the community fare more than 30 days prior to departure remains in place.
The one-way community fare is priced at $139 for Albany, $138 for Esperance, $158 for Monkey Mia and $199 for Carnarvon and it is available to everyone for travel each way. Media statement
