We are working with customers to offer as much flexibility as we can.

Our online sales channels for Hobart tickets are now available. Sales for all other services are temporarily disabled.

We have extended the validity of unused tickets purchased prior to 18 March 2020 to be valid until 31 December 2020 if customers wish to reschedule and use them in the future.

If you had an event or flight cancelled, or simply no longer wish to travel with us, unfortunately we are unable to offer ticket refunds.

Enhanced hygiene measures for passenger safety and comfort

We care deeply about the safety, health and wellbeing of all of our people, passengers and community – and we have a number of measures in place to ensure our response to COVID-19 remains appropriate.

  • We actively monitor the health and wellbeing of our team members and respectfully promote strict hygiene and social distancing measures in our workplace.
  • Every SkyBus vehicle is routinely cleaned to the highest standard including daily enhanced infection control measures.
  • Where appropriate and possible, we provide passengers with opportunities to use hand sanitiser in waiting areas or at point of entering our vehicles.

We continue to work with our government partners and industry to ensure our behaviour remains consistent with official advice while continuing to deliver our world-class services.
