Thursday, 18 August 2005

Regional Express (Rex) has added its congratulations to Carlson Wagonlit in being announced the successful tenderer for the NSW Government Travel Management contract.

“We are very pleased to see the travel management contract going to an independent travel management agency. Regional Express has always advocated this move to both the Federal and State Governments and we are happy that there are finally some positive developments. Tax payers will be the biggest beneficiaries with the best fare of the day policy being scrupulously applied to all government travel,” Geoff Breust, Rex’s Managing Director said.

“We applaud the NSW Government for this initiative which reflects their commitment to transparency and efficacy in government. Rex has already a good working relationship with Carlson Wagonlit and will work hard to enhance this to deliver the best value for money for the NSW Government.

Rex is Australia’s largest independent regional airline and also the largest regional operator in NSW, operating to 17 regional destinations from Sydney and a wider network covering Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.
