Skybus flights operate from Exeter, Newquay and Land’s End Airports and take as little as 15 minutes to reach Scilly. There are stunning aerial views of the Cornish coastline whichever route you take, and when the islands come into view you’ll have a unique opportunity to see the Isles of Scilly from the air as you come in to land at St Mary’s Airport. Flights leave year-round from Land’s End Airport (15 minutes) and Cornwall Airport Newquay (30 minutes), and from Exeter Airport (60 minutes) six days a week between March and October. Thanks to a new partnership with Loganair, from April 2021 Skybus services will connect directly with Loganair services to and from airports at major UK cities including Manchester, Newcastle, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow, connecting through Exeter and Newquay Airports.
There is also a dedicated shuttle bus running between Land’s End Airport and Penzance train station, enabling connections from Skybus flights to GWR rail services to London Paddington and other regional railway stations.
Secure car parking is available at all three airports, and Isles of Scilly Travel’s dedicated Land’s End Airport is small and friendly with no long waits and helpful staff on hand to help you check in just one hour before your flight. Enjoy a coffee and admire the sea views from full length windows looking out over the coast, with no need to worry about rushing or queuing in a busy terminal. When you walk out to board your DHC-6 Twin Otter plane, you’ll be greeted personally by your pilot before enjoying a truly memorable flight
