Australia’s Regional Express (Rex) has established a fund worth A$200,000 ($135,000) in the form of air fares and other means to aid victims of the wildfires that ravaged much of the southeastern state of Victoria last month. Rex also organized collections aboard all its flights and promised to match dollar-for-dollar whatever passengers give. Sydney-based Regional Express maintains a hub in Melbourne, Victoria, from which it flies regular service to six towns. The airline said none of its infrastructure or airplanes incurred damage, however.
