Minister for Tourism and Major Events John Eren joined the SkyBus operators on the tarmac to announce the new service and says the Avolon service has gone from strength to strength.

"This is fabulous news for the Airport and the local community," he says.

"SkyBus’ decision to extend its services to Avalon Airport is a vote of confidence in the region and the Airport."

"Avalon is a gateway to some of our most prized tourist destinations.

"A busier Avalon Airport means visitors from around Australia coming to Victoria to see the best of everything we offer."

Avalon Airport now offers Jetstar services to Hobart, Adelaide, Sydney and the Gold Coast.

The SkyBus Avalon Express replaces existing services currently linking Avalon Airport and the city.

Passengers will be able to use the new Airport Gateway facilities at Southern Cross Station, use free WI-FI and easily access ticketing options.

The Victorian Government claims to have secured an additional 173,000 aeroplane seats for Victoria, which has an estimated economic impact of between $386 million and $575 million over the last two years.

The new SkyBus Avalon Express service begins on February 1.
