Skybus is restructuring its air routes to help fill the void
created by the cessation of the BIH helicopter service.Starting on 4 March 2013 there will be 3 return
flights a day from Exeter
to St Mary’s rising to 5 a day in peak season.The fare is currently £120 or £130 (single).With a rail journey time to Exeter
of ~2hr 30 mins from London it will be possible
to land at St Mary’s before the same London
train arrives in Penzance 3 hrs later.
The improved service from Exeter
and greatly increased number of flights from Lands End comes at the cost of the withdrawal of the Bristol
and Southampton service, a change that inevitably
does not suit everybody.
