Experience a helicopter flight to the Isles of Scilly

The Isles of Scilly are truly unspoilt, a paradise lying just 28 miles off of the coast of Cornwall; a magical cluster of islands offering up long white, sandy beaches and crystal-clear turquoise seas that are more reminiscent of the Caribbean than the UK.

It’s now even easier to discover why visitors return time and time again, as you can connect to Scilly on the recently launched Island Helicopters service, with daily scheduled helicopter flights available for the first time in six years.

Enjoy a stress free check in at Land’s End Airport before hopping on board a brand new ten-seater AW169 helicopter, from which you can enjoy the mesmerising views before arriving just 15 minutes after take off!

Alternatively, you can opt to fly on fixed-wing Skybus planes from Exeter, Newquay or Land’s End, or enjoy a relaxing sail from Penzance on the iconic Scillonian III passenger ferry, soaking up the views of the Cornish coastline along the way.

However you travel, make 2018 the year that you make the connection to Scilly.
