New helicopter service from Land’s End Airport to the Isles of Scilly

The Isles of Scilly Steamship Group has announced the start of a new helicopter service from Land’s End Airport to the Isles of Scilly from May this year.

Called Island Helicopters it will operate year-round up to six days a week from Land’s End Airport, with up to eight return flights a day. The flight time will be approximately 15 minutes.

Island Helicopters will be operated by Gloucester-based Specialist Aviation Services (SAS) in partnership with the Steamship Group using a brand new 10-seater AW169 aircraft. SAS is no stranger to Cornwall and already operates the Cornwall Air Ambulance from Cornwall Airport Newquay.
