Some consolidation in the regional airline market seems likely with the potential aquisition of Sunshine Express by Regional Express. ... Regional Express to Acquire Sunshine Express, and as some of my colleagues refer to Sunshine Express in the same way Regional Express is referred to as Rex, I couldn't resist the heading above.

Have the discussions between REX and SEA being fast tracked because QantasLink announced last Friday 11th August new destinations to Hervey Bay and Biloela from Brisbane?

QantasLink to Launch New Services to Hervey Bay and Biloela

Brisbane, 11 August 2006

QantasLink will commence services on two new Queensland routes - between Brisbane and Hervey Bay and Brisbane and Biloela - from 29 October 2006, subject to regulatory approvals.

Qantas Group General Manager Regional Airlines, Mr Narendra Kumar, said continuing growth in both regions had made the introduction of the new services possible. He said they would further expand QantasLink's network that already included 17 destinations in Queensland.

I suspect it would be the other way around. QF wants to reduce the value of certain routes to the competition.
