Note: Skybus doesn’t operate a call center and only accepts customer queries by e-mail.


Skybus is too new to have a reputation, but the early signs are not promising. It won’t allow customers to contact it by phone. It also has “rules” about flying, such as “Hungry? Thirsty? Bring cash,” and “Don’t be late. We won’t wait,” that seem indifferent at best and at worst, customer-hostile. Hopefully it’s all just rhetoric and Skybus will turn out to be the next Southwest. Then you won’t need the contact information in this file. But you never know …

If you have a customer complaint, please read this before contacting the company.
