Regional Express increases Rex Lounge fees, adds guest access

Regional Express’ Rex Lounge members can now bring a guest into the lounge at no charge as the Australian domestic airline makes its paid lounge program more traveller-friendly.

You’ll still pay a $22 fee to bring a second guest into the lounge on a single visit, but you’ll no longer need to pay that fee for your first guest: such when a Rex Lounge member enters with their partner, friend or colleague in tow.

In return, yearly lounge membership is now priced at $329 for both new applicants and renewing members, up from $299 previously.

Assuming you travel with a guest just twice per year, you’d pay less overall under the new scheme.

The changes bring Rex Lounge into line with the competing – and much larger – Qantas Club and Virgin Lounge programs, which both allow one guest to accompany members into the lounge at no charge.

Regional Express operates lounges at Sydney Airport’s Terminal 2 and Adelaide Airport’s domestic zone, with its newest lounge having opened in May 2016 at Melbourne Airport’s Terminal 4:

All Rex Lounges offer wireless Internet, newspapers, magazines, snacks, tea, coffee and soft drinks throughout the day, along with beer and wine after 3pm.
