Charter Operations in Queensland

Rex Group today announced the continued expansion of its charter operations in Queensland through Rex Group Member, National Jet Express (NJE). Commencing 5 March 2024, NJE will initiate two new weekly services between Moranbah and Cairns.

The services will be operated using NJE’s state-of-the-art De Havilland Dash 8-400NG aircraft, known for its modern design, reliability, and fuel efficiency. This expansion reflects NJE’s commitment to meeting the growing demands for its operations in Queensland and across Australia.

Commenting on the expansion, NJE’s GM for Business Development, Alex Ananian Cooper, stated, “In the short time since our debut in Queensland in July 2023, this is the 4th new long-term contract for our services that NJE has secured across the mining, resources and construction sectors.”

“This clearly demonstrates that these sectors are seeking an operator they can rely on which can deliver the services in modern, fuel-efficient aircraft. To meet the demand for our premium, reliable services, NJE will redouble its efforts to aggressively grow its fleet in Queensland with both the Dash 8-400NG and the Embraer E190.”

“As part of the Rex Group, NJE is able to leverage on Rex’s extensive intrastate RPT network with 24 destinations in Queensland as well as on Rex’s interstate connections to Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide to provide a seamless service for our customers.”
