The new helicopter service will start in May 2018 and will operate year-round, with up to 8 flights a day, six days a week.
Island Helicopters is operated by Gloucester-based Specialist Aviation Services (SAS) in partnership with the Isles of Scilly Travel (part of Isles of Scilly Steamship Group), using a brand new 10-seater AW169 helicopter.
SAS have more than 30 years’ experience in the helicopter industry and already operate the Cornwall Air Ambulance from Cornwall Airport Newquay.
Island Helicopters complements the existing air and sea links to the Isles of Scilly, bringing more choice, flexibility and capacity to the transport network – something everyone wants to see.
The Steamship Company was founded almost 100 years ago to foster the prosperity and wellbeing of the communities we serve. Island Helicopters is the latest chapter in that mission.
