According to APEX, Rex Airlines stood out among the 600 airlines assessed, with passengers praising the airline’s cabin service.

Rex’s Executive Chairman, Lim Kim Hai expressing his pride, highlighted, “We pride ourselves on our warm, heartfelt country hospitality which sets us apart from all other airlines.”
