SkyBus has launched a new di­rect ser­vice con­nect­ing pas­sen­gers in Southbank and Dock­lands to Mel­bourne Air­port.

The new ser­vice has a daily op­er­a­tion from 7am to 7pm with buses ev­ery 30 min­utes on week­days and hourly on week­ends, and started on Novem­ber 5.

The Southbank Dock­lands Air­port Ex­press will have four pickup points within the Southbank and Dock­lands precincts, in­clud­ing one at Har­bour Es­planade, two stops on City Road and one on White­man Street.

SkyBus co- CEO and di­rec­tor Michael Se­wards says the new ser­vice will not only pro­vide bet­ter con­nec­tiv­ity for the wider Southbank and Dock­lands com­mu­ni­ties but pro­vides a vi­tal di­rect air­port con­nec­tion with Mel­bourne’s ex­pand­ing con­ven­tion and con­fer­ence fa­cil­i­ties – and hinted there is more to come.

“We are com­mit­ted to de­velop and in­vest in fur­ther ded­i­cated air­port ex­press ser­vices with world- class cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence, high fre­quency, safety, af­ford­abil­ity and con­ve­nience,” he says. “To achieve this, we will con­tinue work­ing closely with rel­e­vant stake­hold­ers and part­ners to pro­vide fur­ther ex­panded ded­i­cated air­port ser­vices to ben­e­fit the wider com­mu­nity.”

The Southbank Dock­lands Air­port Ex­press is SkyBus’ sixth air­port-ded­i­cated ex­press ser­vice launched in Vic­to­ria, and the third in the last year.

It joins other SkyBus air­port ex­press ser­vices from South­ern Cross Sta­tion, St Kilda, Frankston, Avalon- Gee­long and Avalon- City, as well as the Auck­land SkyBus ser­vice in New Zealand.

In­ter­state and in­ter­na­tional pas­sen­gers can now visit Crown Casino, Mel­bourne Con­ven­tion Cen­tre, Eureka Tower, Eti­had Sta­dium or the Mel­bourne Star di­rectly from Mel­bourne Air­port with the new ser­vice.
