For windows I use this...

on launchSkype pSkypeName
  put "skype:"& pSkypeName &"?chat" into tSyntax
  set the hideConsoleWindows to true
  put empty into tApp
  if ("NT" is in the systemVersion) then
    set the shellCommand to "cmd.exe"
    put quote & quote into tApp
  end if
  get shell("start" && tApp && quote & tSyntax & quote)
end launchSkype
