Skybus flights to the Isles of Scilly from Cornwall Airport Newquay are being reintroduced this spring.

Isles of Scilly Travel is resuming its Skybus services from Newquay on May 1, with scheduled flights available to book until October 23.

Flights from Newquay have been on hold in recent months owing to the Covid-19 pandemic and resulting UK lockdowns.

Stuart Reid, chief executive of the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group which operates Skybus fixed-wing flight services, said: “We are excited to be reintroducing Skybus flights for our popular Newquay route. The service will add choice for passengers wishing to visit the Isles of Scilly, in addition to our existing services from Land’s End Airport and Exeter Airport.”

Pete Downes, MD at Cornwall Airport Newquay, added: “We’re delighted that Skybus is able to start reintroducing services between Newquay and the Isles of Scilly as we follow the roadmap to recovery. We recognise how important these lifeline services are for the islands’ population, as well as for connecting leisure passengers from across the UK when tourism is able to restart.

“We have made significant progress in rebuilding our network, and I’m delighted that Isles of Scilly residents will be able to share the benefits of this.”
