AirAsia introduces Sky Shuttle between Singapore and Senai Airport

AirAsia and Causeway Link has introducing the Sky Shuttle, a joint effort to transport AirAsia guests from Singapore to Senai Airport in Johor Malaysia. Customers will be able to book Causeway Link e-ticket after confirming their AirAsia flights.

With Causeway Link e-tickets, you can board a cross border bus of Causeway Link at either Newton MRT (CW5), Queens Street Bus Terminal (CW2) or Kranji MRT (CW1) to CIQ Malaysia (1st Link).

Located strategically in the Iskandar Malaysia, Senai International Airport is primarily a domestic airport. AirAsia flies from Senai Airport to Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Kuala Lumpur, Miri, Penang and Sibu in Malaysia and Surabaya in Indonesia. Also Firefly flies from here to Kota Bharu, Kuala Lumpur-Subang and operates charters to Langkawi and Malaysia Airlines flies to KL. So, the airport serves as a cheaper alternative to Changi Airport for these destinations.

If you are not a AirAsia customer, you still have several alternatives to travel between Singapore and Senai Airport. The City Lounge provides bus services to the airport, city centre and Kranji MRT Station in Singapore, thus increasing the accessibility of the airport. From Singapore, you can take a public bus service or 'restricted' taxi to Kotaraya Bus Terminal. From the bus terminal, you can change to an express bus service provided by the airport to get to Senai airport. However, if you take a public bus over the Causeway, it is extremely inconvenient for you with luggage since there is a need to disembark and re-board the bus on both the Singapore and Malaysian sides of the border to pass immigration and customs which is one level up from street level.

Below is the Cross-Border Bus Schedule from Singapore to Senai International Airport.
