Airnorth for sale. Would Rex buy it?

I came across an interesting little yarn on this obscure blog an hour ago.


Airnorth's parent company is bankrupt and Airnorth is up for sale - I didn't know but I do now. Apparently, REX is interested. You'd think maybe Alliance and Cobham were kicking the tyres as well.

Regional aviation is one of those things I rarely use, but I know it's important. Often you only need and miss these things when they are gone.

As far as I see it, the only logical buyer would be Qantas.

They're very closely integrated with the codeshares, frequent flyer and freight and I can't imagine it's something Qantas would be willing to lose.

That being said the parent company is reportedly looking for up to $100 million (accuracy of this is questionable) so I doubt anyone is going to fork that much for an airline with partially failing routes.
