Fly out, sail back

Our popular Fly+Sail round trip gives you the chance to experience both Skybus and Scillonian in a single break: fly out to the Isles of Scilly, then sail back to the mainland. Flying out lets you spend more time on the islands, and see the islands from the air. Sailing back into Penzance is a relaxed way to end your trip, looking out for sea life and enjoying the views of the Cornish coast.

And because we operate both services, it couldn’t be easier. Simply park in Penzance – or arrive by train – and meet our perfectly-timed transfer to your outward flight. And when you get back to the mainland, you’re already in the right place to continue your journey home. The only dilemma is: how will you spend those extra hours on Scilly?

Your Fly+Sail round trip in six easy steps

How Fly+Sail ticket works 
1. Arrive in Penzance

There’s ample, secure car parking close to the quay – or leave the car at home and arrive by train.

2. Bus transfer to your flight

Add our shuttle bus services to your booking. Our shuttle bus will meet you by Penzance station, and take you effortlessly to Land’s End Airport, in perfect time for check-in.

3. Fly to Scilly with Skybus

You’ll meet your pilot and hop aboard for a 15-minute flight to the islands. The views are spectacular – it may be the first time you’ll ever have wished a flight took longer.

4. Enjoy the Isles of Scilly

Whether you’re there for a day trip or a longer stay, make the most of every minute on the islands.

5. Sail back to Penzance

At the end of your stay, catch Scillonian III from St. Mary’s to Penzance. It takes around 2 hours and 45 minutes, and you’ll see the Cornish coast from a completely new perspective.

6. Make your way home

Penzance car parks, and the railway station are only a short walk from Penzance Quay– so all that remains is to continue your onward journey and chat about the memories you’ve made.

Easy. More time on the islands

A Greater Day Trip

Any day on the Isles of Scilly is great. But a Fly+Sail ticket gives you a chance to make it that bit greater – with up to twice as much time on the islands. Potentially, that’s double the time to explore: twice as many islands, sights and beaches. And if you’ve never been to St. Martin’s – or are tempted to try snorkelling with seals – the extra time with a Fly+Sail round trip is perfect.
