Regional Express has returned to Grafton today after a 2.5-month hiatus of the town’s only air service, reconnecting Grafton to Lismore and Sydney on a triangulated route.

The route had been suspended on 4 June 2020 following a dispute with the local Clarence Valley Council, regarding a comment made by an elected representative that the airline disagreed with.

“Although Rex has always taken the view that elected representatives speak on behalf of the community, Rex is giving the benefit of the doubt to the community of Grafton,” said Rex Deputy Chairman, the Hon. John Sharp AM.

The Member for Page, Kevin Hogan, shared that “I have continued to work with Rex, Clarence Valley Council and the Deputy Prime Minister to resolve this issue.”
