Rex will operate the service every week day.

Yesterday, Rex also announced that they would start services from Cairns to Mt Isa beginning in May. 

In a media release (which can be viewed HERE), Warrick Lodge, General Manager Network Strategy and Sales, stated:
"Today I am pleased to announce that Rex will commence a direct Regular Public Transport (RPT) service between Cairns and Mount Isa with effect from Monday 25 May 2015."
He went on to say:
"Rex will initially base three aircraft in Cairns from 25 May and is prepared to increase the fleet as new opportunities arise in the new financial year. We invite the communities in the Cape region as well as elsewhere in North Queensland to contact us if they believe that they have a case for a viable air service."
