It is no longer mandatory for face masks to be worn at airports or when onboard an aircraft (effective 9 September 2022).

We recommend passengers continue to maintain good hygiene, such as frequent hand washing or sanitizing and practicing sneeze and cough etiquette.

Passengers may continue to wear masks as an additional layer of protection. Masks are available at Rex check-in counters.

You must not travel if you:

  • are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, such as fever/chills, shortness of breath, cough or sore throat, loss of taste/smell, unless medical clearance has been given,
  • are currently required to self-isolate or quarantine.

For more information, refer to your local state/territory public health guidelines.


If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms prior to your Rex flight, you must defer your travel in accordance with the Fare Rules and contact your travel insurance provider.

You can review the Fare Rules, which outline the permitted changes to your ticket, here.

If you are unable to travel due to contracting COVID-19 (and are required to isolate for the date travel is booked), you may place the ticket on hold for future use (without fee) with supporting documentation. Fare differences may apply when rebooking.

Acceptable supporting documentation is a copy/screenshot of a positive PCR test notification, declaration to state government of positive Rapid Antigen Test or equivalent (with name and date clearly visible). Please submit requests via the feedback form:

The comfort, safety and wellbeing of our passengers and employees is our utmost priority. In response to COVID-19, additional precautionary defences have been implemented in accordance with official recommendations.

Aircraft Cleaning
Whilst we maintain a high degree of cleanliness on-board our aircraft at all times, we have increased our existing aircraft cleaning procedures to include enhanced cleaning of the aircraft cabin, service equipment and flight deck with a broad spectrum disinfectant cleaner which kills 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2 causing microbes (COVID-19, as well as long lasting bacteria and odour elimination. It is a food-grade cleaner and is approved for use on aircraft.

Air Filtration On-board
Our fleet of Saab 340 and Boeing 737-800NG aircraft are fitted with High Efficiency Particle Air (HEPA) filters, which perform similarly to those used to keep the air clean in hospital operating rooms, and are the best available technology for filtering the air on-board aircraft. Test results prove that HEPA filters have a high level of microbial removal efficacy in aircraft cabin air filters; this means that the air quality on the aircraft is essentially sterile and particle free.

Hand Sanitiser
You may bring your own hand sanitiser when you travel, or you can utilise our on-board supplies located in the toilet. Hand sanitiser is considered a toiletry item, and is permitted to be carried in carry-on luggage and/or checked baggage in restricted quantities*.

Please note the following limitations apply to the carriage of toiletries (these restrictions are set by Civil Aviation Safety Regulations):

  • No more than 500g/500ml per individual item
  • All items together must not total more than 2kg/2L
  • Aerosol nozzles must be protected, e.g. protective cap

In accordance with a mandatory data collection regime enacted by the Federal Government, all domestic passengers are required to provide the following information at the time of making their booking:

  1. Passenger name
  2. Mobile phone number
  3. Email address
  4. State of residence
All passenger information is treated sensitively, and will assist state health department contact tracing teams in tracking COVID-19 cases should a formal request be received.


State governments may impose travel restrictions which may limit travel to, from and/or within a state; as well as mandating isolation or quarantine.

Passengers are responsible for ensuring that their travel adheres to any government enforced travel restrictions or requirements.

COVID Safe Business
We are officially registered as a COVID Safe business with the NSW Government. We have a COVID-19 Safety Plan and are committed to keeping you safe.
