From spring 2020 a new Isles of Scilly helicopter will provide direct flights to Tresco and St Mary's from a new Penzance Heliport.
Flying from 2020, the Isles of Scilly helicopter from Penzance Heliport will reinstate helicopter flights to Tresco and St Mary’s on the Isles of Scilly – the only service providing direct flights to Tresco Island.
Fly to Tresco or St Mary’s aboard the state-of-the-art AW139 helicopter, with up to 17 return flights per day throughout the year, including a limited Sunday service.
The new, purpose-built Penzance Heliport will be located close to the previous heliport site, with excellent road access straight off the A30 and an electric shuttle bus link with Penzance Rail Station just one mile away. The near sea level location of the heliport will deliver superior weather resilience for helicopter flights to the Isles of Scilly.
The heliport will be built during 2019 after the project was given unanimous backing by Cornwall Council in its planning decision in August 2018.
Penzance Heliport will provide a convenient, accessible and weather resilient base for helicopter flights to the Isles of Scilly, as the site did for nearly 50 years previously. The new service will enhance passenger choice, capacity and resilience in transport to the Isles of Scilly.
We expect the new service to be operational by spring 2020.
If you are coming to Tresco in 2019, you can currently fly from Land's End, Newquay and Exeter or sail from Penzance with Isles of Scilly Travel. Find out more about Travelling to Tresco.
