SkyBus to introduce new double deckers to Avalon
SkyBus, operator of Australasia’s premier airport transfer service, welcomes the announcement made by Avalon Airport that it will become Victoria’s second international airport after securing a major deal with Malaysia’s long-haul budget carrier, AirAsia X.
“We congratulate Justin Giddings and his team at Avalon Airport on this important announcement and their hard work to reach this milestone for the Airport and the wider Geelong Bellarine Peninsula region,” said Michael Sewards, Co-CEO and Director of SkyBus.
“Our existing Avalon service has seen massive growth since we began a year ago, and we already have on order two of our iconic red double decker buses for our existing Avalon Airport services being delivered in April.”
“To complement the passenger growth from the arrival of AirAsia X, we are excited to announce that we will deliver an additional two double decker buses later this year, bringing our total Avalon fleet to four double deckers, or $4 million in total investment. All buses will be built in Australia.”
“SkyBus Avalon provides domestic and international passengers with a world-class service that is reliable, affordable, safe and convenient,” said Mr Sewards.
