Skybus to buy an extra aircraft for IOS route.

From BBC Internet News 15 Sep 2012:
 More aeroplane flights are to be made to the Isles of Scilly after helicopter services end in October, the Isles of Scilly Steamship Company has said.
The firm said it planned to buy another 19-seat aircraft to add to the six Skybus planes it runs to St Mary's.
A ferry would also travel from Penzance every day next summer…….

The company said it was planning to increase the size of its air passenger terminal at Land’s End, and that a new control tower would make flights less weather dependent.

Comment.   Skybus has, from time to time, had to carry passengers unable to fly on the BIH helicopter service due to technical problems.  Generally Skybus has been able to carry the majority of passengers, the remainder travelling on the Scillonian.  This announcement ought to ensure that Skybus has sufficient aircraft seats for the busy summer period in 2013.
