Regional Express (Rex) has announced that it will implement an improved flight schedule between Griffith and Melbourne from 19 July 2010.
The current flight times of 10:30 from Melbourne to Griffith and 13:15pm from Griffith to Melbourne will be moved to a later time slot to meet the needs of both business and leisure customers better. The new schedule will see departure from Melbourne to Griffith at 17:00 and at 18:30 from Griffith to Melbourne. The enhanced flight times will operate Sunday to Friday inclusively.
Commenting on the flight schedule improvements, Rex GM network strategy and sales, Warrick Lodge said, “Rex has been receiving feedback from the local community and the Council for a better schedule that allows business travellers to spend a full day in either Melbourne or Griffith while keeping accommodation requirements to a single night. We have responded at the first opportunity to achieve this objective.”
“In addition the later flight time on Friday and Sunday in particular will expand weekend opportunities for both leisure and discretionary travellers.” Lodge added.
