Lismore City Council has been working with REX to resume passenger flights to and from Lismore Regional Airport.
This is to ensure Lismore is connected during this difficult time.
Rex flights will resume on Friday, 11 March 2022 with flight ZL6318 departing Sydney at 7.25am via Grafton and arriving in Lismore at 9.40am. It will return direct to Sydney departing at 10am.
The airport is also being used by Government officials, emergency services, volunteers, and those with expertise to assist with the recover and rebuild.
Due to the extensive flood damage, the airport terminal is non-operational, however a temporary passenger area has been established.
REX currently flies to and from Lismore to Sydney on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday, however more flights can be scheduled if community demand increases.
Council would like to congratulate REX for its willingness to reinstate flights so quickly following the flood and their support for Lismore and the Northern Rivers Region.
Flights can be booked at www.rex.com.au.
