written by Robyn Tongol | May 27, 2021

What a year Rex has had: from COVID-induced oblivion to fighting for the Golden Triangle via a high-profile falling out with Qantas.

In this episode, we talk to the man in charge, deputy chairman John Sharp, to find out first-hand how it all played out.

We dig deep into the rights and wrongs of Qantas launching flights on previously exclusive Rex routes, how he coped with having to stand down staff and why the pandemic presented a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to expand.

Finally, Sharp talks about his passion for aviation and why he loves the industry so much.
