Skybus

All year round, Skybus is the fastest way to and from the Isles of Scilly. The journey takes just 15 minutes from Land’s End to St. Mary’s, 30 minutes from Newquay Airport, and from Exeter it’s an hour. You’ll travel in an 8 or 19-seater plane, where you meet your pilot and watch them at work: it’s “Real flying”, as one passenger put it.

Flying with Skybus is easy – whether it’s the perfectly-timed transfers, your free luggage allowance, the friendly staff at Land’s End Airport, or the onward connections at Newquay and Exeter, we’ll help you to relax before you’ve even checked in.

Amazing sights on your journey

831-587_v1_aerialYour first glimpse of the islands

Very quickly after take off, the Isles of Scilly come into view. Before you know it, you’re looking down at quiet, sandy coves and clear, turquoise seas in between.

 
sb2The North Cornwall coast

Fly from Newquay, and you’ll also take in Cornwall’s spectacular north coast: the long stretch of beach at Perranporth, the towering North Cliffs, and picture-perfect St. Ives.

Cornwall’s furthest tip is suitably dramatic. As you head out over the Atlantic, you’ll see the cliffs, rocks and waves in an entirely new way.

 
longships-lighthouseLongships Lighthouse

There’s been a lighthouse protecting shipping from the treacherous Land’s End coast since 1795. The current tower is almost 150 years old, and can be seen 11 miles away.
