Today REX Airlines began to abandon Northern Rivers regional airports - yet again


On 31 May 2022 Regional Express (REX) airlines confirmed that it was withdrawing airline services from Lismore and Grafton on 1 June 2022 and from Ballina on 2 July 2022.

At the same time it announced cessation of service to Kangarooo Island.

Very predictably this withdrawal again - as it has so often in the past - coincided with the cessation of federal government funding which heavily subsidizes REX.

The phrase 'shakedown merchant' comes to mind.
