“We have al­ready re­ceived great feed­back from early users on this in­te­gra­tion”

Air­port trans­fer com­pany SkyBus, which op­er­ates an ex­press ser­vice from Mel­bourne’s CBD to Avalon and Tul­la­ma­rine air­ports, has an­nounced a part­ner­ship with travel man­age­ment ser­vice QBT, en­abling its cor­po­rate and gov­ern­ment cus­tomers to add Mel­bourne City Ex­press tick­ets to their travel itin­er­ary.

By util­is­ing the Amadeus e-Travel Man­age­ment (AeTM) plat­form, SkyBus and QBT are pro­vid­ing an af­ford­able air­port trans­fer op­tion, en­abling busi­ness trav­ellers a seam­less way of adding route tick­ets at the time of book­ing ar­range­ments, in­clud­ing flights and ac­com­mo­da­tion. The in­te­gra­tion will help re­move an ad­di­tional step of book­ing air­port trans­port sep­a­rately.

For QBT’s cus­tomer base, this part­ner­ship can also help cut on travel ex­penses.

“SkyBus is de­signed for all types of trav­ellers in mind, from solo to fam­i­lies and even cor­po­rate. As a re­sult, we want to make sure each trav­eller has the sim­plest, most con­ve­nient way of book­ing trans­porta­tion when trav­el­ling in and out of Mel­bourne CBD and Mel­bourne Air­port,” SkyBus co- CEO and di­rec­tor Michael Se­wards says.

“We are ex­cited to part­ner with QBT to of­fer our ser­vices to their cor­po­rate and gov­ern­ment cus­tomers as part of a to­tal travel so­lu­tion. We have al­ready re­ceived great feed­back from early users on this in­te­gra­tion and are op­ti­mistic that our ser­vice will help QBT’s cus­tomers save time and money with this has­sle-free op­tion.”

QBT’s group gen­eral man­ager Nick Suther­land says that by part­ner­ing with SkyBus it is able to pro­vide users a cost-ef­fec­tive and con­ve­nient air­port trans­fer.

“Our cus­tomers are in­creas­ingly ask­ing for lo­cal con­tent avail­abil­ity.

“They don’t want to spend un­nec­es­sary time look­ing at all the ex­tra add-ons as­so­ci­ated with cor­po­rate travel, in­clud­ing air­port trans­porta­tion ser­vices.

“In­stead, they want a plat­form that in­cludes book­ing Mel­bourne Air­port trans­porta­tion.”

All QBT cus­tomers will have ac­cess to book­ing SkyBus’ Mel­bourne City Ex­press, which takes them from Mel­bourne Air­port to the CBD.

As part of the on­go­ing part­ner­ship, SkyBus and QBT will look to in­te­grate ad­di­tional routes, in­clud­ing Avalon City Ex­press and St Kilda Ex­press, into the plat­form at a later date.
