A Note From Robert Dorrien-Smith Dear Supporter, Tresco Estate has today confirmed that the Isles of Scilly Steamship Company’s proposed helicopter service will not be able to operate into Tresco. …
Penzance Heliport will reinstate the scheduled passenger helicopter service between Penzance and the Isles of Scilly from 2019.
The service from Penzance will offer significant weather resilience benefits due to the heliport’s near sea-level location. The helicopter will also offer a genuine choice of operator in the Isles of Scilly transport market.
Flights will operate into both St Mary’s Airport and Tresco Heliport, offering a resilient, fast, comfortable and customer-focused year-round helicopter lifeline to the Isles of Scilly.
The project will help grow visitor numbers to the islands, extend the tourist season, secure and create employment and make transport easier and more reliable for locals and visitors alike. Above all, this project will help secure the economic and social future of the Isles of Scilly, making the islands a better place to live, visit and work.
