HTM K.K. Takes Over Skybus Transfer and Sprint Taxi Operations in Niseko, Hokkaido, Japan

10 March, 2017

HTM K.K. is delighted to announce that it will take over Skybus and Sprint Taxi operations from Skybus K.K. in June 2017. As part of the transfer, Skybus will be rebranded as “SkyExpress”.

Airport transfers, Kutchan taxi services and area tours will continue to operate as now with SkyExpress booking transfers direct with guests and through a wide range of travel and hotel companies.

Founder and managing director of Skybus, Jeremy Churchill, will continue as manager of SkyExpress and Sprint Taxi, as will the drivers and staff of Skybus.

Chris Pickering, Director and General Manager of HTM, said: “Airport and local transport impact all visitors to Niseko so this is an area which is very important to our customers and the continued success and growth of the resort.

HTM and Skybus have worked together for many years and extending HTM’s services to transfers and taxis for guests was a step that we have been considering for some time.

SkyExpress and Sprint Taxi operations and staff will remain based in Kutchan and we will bring the back office resources of HTM to grow the business and improve services for all visitors to the resort."

Jeremy Churchill commented: "I'm excited to see the next step in the evolution of Skybus and Sprint Taxi and believe that the company is in the right hands going forward. The whole team are very much looking forward to being part of the HTM group."
