Can I book a helicopter flight?

Tickets will go on sale during the month of April 2018. Please register your details via our website or by calling our travel centre and we will be in touch when tickets are on sale. They will also be available from our website from that date at www.islesofscilly-travel.co.uk

How much does it cost?

A single fare is anticipated to start from £215 return, subject to charges levied by St. Mary's and Tresco Airports.

Are there any concessionary fares?

Not on the helicopter service.

Where will the helicopter fly to- St. Mary's and Tresco?

We plan to fly to St. Mary's and Tresco, subject to agreement with both.

Will you fly from Newquay and Exeter?

No, the helicopter service will only operate from Land's End Airport.

What days does the helicopter fly?

We will operate up to six days a week (not Sundays) with 8 flights a day.

Will the helicopter operate year-around?

Yes. The service in winter will be less frequent because fewer people travel.

What is the luggage limit for the helicopter?

The limit is 15kg per person.

Can I pay a supplement if I want to bring more luggage?

We are looking at the best way to manage excess baggage and will publish full terms and conditions by the time the helicopter tickets go on sale.

Can I change my Skybus / Scillonian booking to the helicopter?

Once bookings go live from April 2018 and subject to availability this will be possible. You will have to pay the difference in fares plus and administration fee.

Is there a Travel Club concession for the helicopter?

There is unlikely to be a Travel Club concession for the helicopter but Travel Club discounts will continue to be available on Skybus and the Scillonian as they are now.

Can I use the helicopter for my NHS flight?

We have not yet discussed this with the NHS but they will continue to be available on Skybus as they are now.
