With an extensive heritage of regional aviation, Rex is proud of its roots in regional Australia and one of our key values is our commitment to the people and the communities we serve.
Rex stands united with the regional and remote communities affected by natural disasters such as drought, flood, and bushfire.
Following the announcement of a drought relief fund in 2018; this year, Rex has established the Rex Relief Fund, with $1.5 million set aside for natural disaster relief to regional Australia.
This fund will be available for all relief efforts arising from natural disasters like drought, floods and bushfire. Community groups working to alleviate the impact of natural disasters will be able to apply to draw from the fund in the form of $4.00 of travel on the Rex network for every $1.00 raised by the community groups. Small businesses that are providing assistance to victims of natural disasters will also be eligible for assistance.
