From spring 2020 we’re reinstating the helicopter between Penzance and the Isles of Scilly. Join the journey today…
From spring 2020, helicopters will once again fly between Penzance and the islands of Tresco and St Mary’s on the Isles of Scilly.
For nearly 50 years, Penzance was the proud home of the helicopter service to the Isles of Scilly, providing a resilient, reliable and convenient connection to an island paradise.
We’re reinstating this vital link with a state-of-the-art helicopter flying from a modern, purpose-built heliport on the edge of Penzance, with excellent road and rail links.
Fly aboard the 15 seat AW139 helicotper to St Mary’s or Tresco on the Isles of Scilly in just 15 minutes, with a year round service and up to 17 flights per day, including a limited Sunday schedule.
Construction of the heliport is now underway; join the journey now to follow our progress. We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
