In a boon for many regional NSW business travellers, Rex will begin flights between Sydney and Newcastle from the end of October.
The airline (full name Regional Express) will fly the 45-minute route three times daily during the week, with two daily returns on the weekend.
The Sydney-Newcastle flights are well-timed for business travellers: weekday departures from Sydney are at 0715, 1415 and 1700, with flights from Newcastle departing at 0820, 1150 and 1810.
Here's the full timetable:
Rex will use its fleet of Saab 340 planes on the route, which seat between 33 and 36 passengers. The single cabin is laid out in a 1-2 configuration, so if you're travelling alone you'll want to aim for the seats on the left hand side of the plane.
Rex will also run daily return flights between Newcastle and Ballina/Byron Bay.
