Connect to Scilly in 2018
With a new helicopter service to the Isles of Scilly set to launch this May, it’s never been so easy to discover the UK destination that feels like an exotic escape.
The Isles of Scilly lie just 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall, offering a truly unspoilt paradise offering a welcome break from the stresses and strains of everyday life as you return to a simpler pace of life.
“Crystal-clear turquoise waters and long white sandy beaches are waiting for you as soon as you arrive on this breath-taking archipelago.”
The islands are the first place summer arrives in England – and the last place that it leaves. Crystal-clear turquoise waters and long white sandy beaches are waiting for you as soon as you arrive on this breath-taking archipelago.
And with Isles of Scilly Travel, you can get there in style, courtesy of the brand new Island Helicopters service, which takes its inaugural flight on May 21st.
Helicopters will fly to the Isles of Scilly up to eight times a day, six days a week, and the brand new 10-seater AW169 helicopters, operated by Specialist Aviation Services (SAS), can fly in all weathers, making it easier for visitors to make the journey no matter what time of year they choose to visit.
Island Helicopters joins the other transport services provided by Isles of Scilly Travel – Skybus fixed-wing flights available from Exeter, Newquay and Land’s End, which can reach the Isles of Scilly in under an hour, and the iconic Scillonian III passenger ferry which sails from Penzance.
However you choose to get to the Isles of Scilly, you’ll enjoy living the island life as soon as you arrive. Snorkel with seals, kayak to hidden coves, spot rare birds and wildlife or simply wind down and soak up the view. It’s up to you how you play your part in the story of these magical islands.
So make 2018 the year that you connect with Scilly and book your Island Helicopter flight, Skybus flight or Scillonian ferry ticket now.
