Australian regional carrier Regional Express (Rex) has signed an interline agreement with Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways. The agreement will provide Rex passengers originating in any of the domestic Australian towns and cities served by the airline to seamlessly connect to Etihad’s international network of 72 destinations via its hubs at Sydney (SYD) and Melbourne (MEL) airports.

Being a reciprocal agreement, passengers arriving in Sydney or Melbourne on one of Etihad’s regular nonstop services from Abu Dhabi will be able to transfer to the Rex domestic network of 56 destinations. Passengers taking advantage of the new arrangement will no longer need to collect their baggage in Sydney or Melbourne or recheck in for their onward connecting flight operated by the other carrier.

“Partnering with a world-class airline like Etihad brings a new era of choice and connection for Rex passengers,” said Rex’s General Manager of Network Strategy, Warrick Lodge. “Passengers will be able to fly to either Sydney or Melbourne on Rex and thereafter connect on Etihad to a further 72 destinations across the globe.”

“Etihad’s extensive international network includes Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and the USA,” said Arik De, Etihad’s Chief Revenue and Commercial Officer.  “The entire journey, including Etihad and Rex connecting flights, can be booked under one booking and passengers can enjoy the convenience of through-check baggage (where permitted).”

“This exciting new partnership significantly expands connectivity options for Etihad guests, providing them with effortless access from our gateways in Sydney and Melbourne to pivotal destinations within the Rex network, including Adelaide, Hobart, Canberra, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast. Equally, we are thrilled to extend a warm welcome to Rex customers, enabling them to seamlessly integrate into our expanding global network,” he added.
