Travel Australia By Air




Because it is such a big country, air travel is very popular in Australia and is often the only way to go from one place and another within the same day. Australia has four major interstate airlines plus a number of smaller regional carriers. The main airlines are the long-established Qantas, Jetstar, Tiger Airways and Virgin Australia. Qantas has the most extensive flight network followed by Virgin Blue and Jetstar. Tiger Airways is the new kid on the block having started service in November 2007. All four airlines have relatively young fleets.

Regional Express, also known as Rex Airlines, is Australia's main regional airline. Rex flies to around 35 regional destinations in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria.
