Check-in and Boarding Time

We aim to take you to your destination on time, every time. Please ensure you arrive at the airport with sufficient time for check-in and boarding.

As stated in the Rex Conditions of Carriage, check-in closes:

  • 60 minutes prior to scheduled departure time at Burketown airport
  • 30 minutes prior to scheduled departure time at capital city airports plus Cairns, Gold Coast and Townsville
  • 30 minutes prior to scheduled departure time at all regional airports in NSW, SA, TAS, VIC, QLD and WA (excluding Burketown)

Passengers who fail to present themselves at check-in by this time may NOT be permitted to board and be deemed as a ‘No Show’ which may result in the forfeiture of your fare for certain fare classes.

Please familiarise yourself with our Minimum Connecting Times before making a booking with connecting flights.
