Fly with Skybus to the Isles of Scilly all year round
There can’t be many places in England where you arrive on holiday on a scheduled flight in what feels like your own private aircraft with a personal pilot as you enjoy spectacular views of the coast line.
That’s because when you fly to Scilly, you will travel either on an 8-seater Britten-Norman Islander aircraft or a 19-seater De Havilland Twin Otter. Flying to the Isles of Scilly is the antithesis of modern day air travel - a special and pleasurable experience from the moment you check in.
There are three departure points from the mainland – Exeter Airport which is 60-minute flight (March to October), Newquay Cornwall Airport which takes 30 minutes, and Land’s End which is just a 15-minute hop to the islands. Both Newquay and Land’s End flights operate year round. The Isles of Scilly Airport is located on the main island of St. Mary's.
Secure car parking and car hire is available at all three airports, and if you are flying from Exeter, you can enjoy a 20% parking discount. If you are travelling by train to Exeter or Bodmin Parkway/Par for Newquay, you will need to taxi to the airports. A dedicated shuttle bus operates between Penzance station and Land’s End airport – book this at the time you arrange your flights.
Fares start from £70 one way, less for children and infants. You can also come to the Isles of Scilly for a day at a special rate from £100 return from Lands End or Newquay. Visit Isles of Scilly Travel for more information and bookings. Note: all departing passengers from Newquay Airport over the age of 16 are required to pay an Airport Development Fee.
If you need to overnight due to an early morning flight, there are many accommodation options in Penzance for Land's End and, at Newquay, the Smugglers Inn at the Airways Hotel is located 500 metres from the airport.
