Rex airlines’ Snowy Mountains service begins with $99 flights

Alex Keshen 23 March 2016


Going to the snow just got a little bit cheaper with the launch of direct flights from Sydney to Cooma.

Regional Express (Rex) has now begun flying to the Snowy Mountains from Sydney, offering direct flights to Cooma Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays throughout the ski season.

Rex is offering an introductory fare of just $99 each way, and according to the airline’s baggage policy, this includes ski equipment as part of your checked luggage up to 15kg.

The airline will operate the flights, which take just 65 minutes, aboard its fleet of 50 Saab 340 aircraft.

Previously, the only other transport options (other than driving yourself) were coaches, which took a minimum of 5.5 hours to get from the city to the snow and cost $158 return.

While the bus is $40 cheaper for the return trip, the service, operated by Murrays, only had one departure option: leaving Sydney at 1am on Saturday morning and returning to the city after a day in the Snowy Mountains that same afternoon throughout July and August. This means anyone wishing to stay overnight would need to find another mode of transport.
