By Air

  1. Fly with Skybus
    Whether you fly from Exeter, Newquay or Land’s End, Skybus is the fastest way to Scilly. Our planes are unique – you’ll be able to watch your pilot at work – if you can tear your eyes away from the breathtaking aerial views, that is. Skybus departs year round from Land’s End and Newquay and from March-November from Exeter. Travel times are 20 mins from Land’s End, 30 mins from Newquay and 60 mins from Exeter. On arrival a shuttle bus will take you and your bags to your accommodation, or to the quay – for the off islands – for a small fee.
  2. Fly with Island Helicopters
    Enjoy the thrill of arriving on Scilly by helicopter! Introduced in May 2018, Isles of Scilly Travel offers this exciting experience from Land’s End up to 8 times a day, 6 days a week. Fly in a 10-seater AW169, admire the fantastic views and arrive on the islands in just 15 minutes. On arrival on St. Mary’s, a shuttle bus will take you and your bags to your accommodation, or down to the quay for onward travel to the other islands by inter-island boat.
  3. Penzance Heliport
    Coming in Spring 2020, travel by helicopter from Penzance to Tresco or St. Mary's in 15 minutes on a state of the art helicopter. Planning to offer an all year round service and Sunday flights, experience the closest thing to true flight as you gaze over the isles, a slice of paradise in a jewel like sea before landing. Offering a 20kg luggage allowance for passengers with excellent road and rail links.
