National Jet Express (NJE), a subsidiary of the Rex Group, has made its highly anticipated entry into the Queensland market by securing a long-term contract. NJE recently announced that it had been chosen to provide services to BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA), a renowned global mining operator.

Chris Hine, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of NJE, expressed gratitude for being selected by BMA, emphasizing their esteemed reputation in the mining sector. Hine saw this contract as an endorsement of NJE’s status as a premium regional air service provider for the mining and resources industry. In addition, he highlighted the company’s commitment to reducing environmental impact by operating a fleet of modern Dash 8-Q400NG aircraft. These aircraft offer higher speeds, consume 50% less fuel, and have lower levels of carbon emissions.

To support the expansion of its services, NJE plans to procure two Dash 8-Q400NGs for its operations in Queensland. Furthermore, the company will establish a significant operational base in Brisbane. Hine has acknowledged the interest from various mining operators in Queensland who have been eager for the Rex Group to bring its renowned standards of reliability, professionalism, and safety to the mining markets. He recognized the pent-up demand for a premium mining and resources air service provider in Queensland and expressed the Rex Group’s readiness to meet this need by procuring additional Dash 8-Q400NGs and potentially introducing Embraer E190 jets.

Highlighting the Rex Group’s ability to swiftly respond to the urgent demands of the resources sector, Hine has emphasized NJE’s readiness to commence operations on July 1, 2023, which is less than six weeks away. He reassured stakeholders that safety and on-time performance would remain paramount.

With 24 destinations, the Rex Group is the largest regional operator of Regular Passenger Transport services in regional and rural Queensland. NJE aims to leverage this extensive network to deliver innovative solutions to the air transport requirements of the mining and resources industry across regional and rural Queensland.

The entry of National Jet Express into the Queensland market marks a significant milestone for the company, positioning it as a key player in providing premium air services to the mining and resources industry. With a focus on efficiency, sustainability, and safety, NJE aims to meet the demands of the resources sector while delivering exceptional service throughout regional and rural Queensland.
