Airport transfer company SkyBus, which operates an express service from Melbourne’s CBD to its airports, has announced a partnership with travel management service QBT
“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.
