Getting started

SkyBus has developed a new online portal for Airport Employees and Qantas Group staff to make it easier than ever to purchase, manage and use your discounted multi-trip tickets.

How it works

If you are an eligible Melbourne Airport employee or Qantas Group staff member you can register for SkyBus Airport Employee fares. Once approved you will have access to the SkyBus Airport Employee portal to purchase discounted multi-trip fares on select SkyBus services. Tickets can be purchased online and are available for immediate use.

There are two products available and can be purchased for either Melbourne City Express or Peninsula Express services. Both are valid for 3 months from the date of purchase.

  • Staff 20 Trip ticket – 20 One way trips in either direction.
  • Staff 40 Trip ticket – 40 One way trips in either direction.

The new multi-trip airport staff tickets can be viewed and presented on your smartphone. New Live tickets display the number of remaining trips as well as the expiry. Once you’ve redeemed all trips on your ticket simply purchase a new ticket through the portal. Three multi-trip tickets (up to 120 trips) can be purchased each calendar month.

To maintain access to the exclusive discount fares you must resubmit proof of eligibility every six months. You will be sent a reminder and reapplying is done through the portal.
