On behalf of the helicopter operator, please find below information on Penzance Helicopters.
Ticket sales will launch tomorrow (Tuesday 20th August 2019) at www.penzancehelicopters.co.uk with flights taking off from 17th March 2020.
Following the wonderful support of FRIST members in getting the project to this stage, we would be delighted if you would bring this to their attention (though please note the press release attached is embargoed until 0900 on Tuesday 20th August) I also attach an image of the helicopter for use in publicity materials.
In brief, flights are scheduled to take off from 17th March 2020, flying direct to both Tresco and St Mary’s from the new Penzance Heliport. The facility will provide excellent accessibility, located just off the A30 at Penzance with 270 parking spaces, and less than a mile from Penzance railway station by electric shuttle bus. The sea level location of the site will offer excellent weather resilience to low cloud and fog.
Flights will take just 15-minutes in a state-of-the-art AW139 helicopter, with up to 17 flights per day, six days a week - Monday to Saturday, significantly increasing the capacity and resilience of air services to the islands and helping provide a foundation for future growth in the islands. Ticket prices start form £122.50 one-way. The service is operated by Sloane Helicopters – one of the leading helicopter operators in Europe with nearly 50 years’ experience.
If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
