SkyBus has confirmed it will indefinitely suspend its Auckland Airport Express service to the city, after suffering an 80% drop in patronage during the pandemic, NZ Herald reports. SkyBus relies on international passengers, but border closures have resulted in the service operating at an unsustainable level, with significant financial losses incurred each month. The decision was not taken lightly, and followed consultation with both employees and key stakeholders, including Auckland Transport and Auckland Airport. “Our business does not receive any of the normal subsidies that other urban bus services enjoy, and therefore its only source of income is from passenger fares.”
