The Senai Airport Shuttle connects the Johor Bahru City Centre (JB Sentral) with Senai Airport, a small airport located north of Johor Bahru, serving mostly domestic flights and some international flights to nearby destinations. The route is express with a journey time of 40 minutes and calls at no en-route stops.
Buses depart JB Sentral daily at 5:30am and then every hourly from 6:00am to 10:00pm. From Senai Airpor, buses depart at 6:10am and then every hourly from 7:00am to 9:00pm. Last two departures are at 10:15pm and 11:30pm. The fare is RM8.00, and tickets must be bought from the designated Causeway Link counter prior to boarding. Alternatively, tickets can be purchased online at the Causeway Link website which guarantees a reserved seat.
First introduced as the CWA Free AirAsia Sky Shuttle in late 2012, the service was a joint between Causeway Link and AirAsia, plying between JB CIQ and Senai Airport (via JB Sentral). Free rides were offered to AirAsia passengers with valid e-tickets flying in and out of Senai Airport, and members of the public had to pay for tickets. The Sky Shuttle was discontinued effective 30 June 2015, but Causeway Link continued to operate the service between JB Sentral and Senai Airport in its present form, while improving the frequency from 2 hours to 1 hour per bus throughout most of the day.
