Skybus offers day shopping trips to Truro
The Isles of Scilly Steamship Group has announced that it will run special Skybus shopping days to Truro starting today.
The trips, giving islanders four hours in the city, will take place every Wednesday until March 21st.
Tickets cost £90 per person, which includes return flights from St Mary’s Airport to Newquay Airport, as well as free taxi transfers between Newquay and Truro city centre.
The offer represents a saving of £70 on full-price Skybus day trips and more than £23 off the cost of regular Travel Club tickets – in addition to the taxi transfers.
Steamship Group Managing Director Mark Howarth said: “When we held a series of listening events on the Isles of Scilly last year, islanders told us about the difficulties they faced in getting to Truro. We decided to provide these special Skybus day trips at an affordable price so we can take the hassle and the worry out of traveling to Truro, and make it easier for islanders to visit the mainland when they need to.”
Residents will depart St Mary’s Airport on a Skybus flight at 9.15am and arrive in Truro, via Newquay Airport and taxi transfer, by around 10.20am. They will be picked up at the Truro Coinage Hall taxi rank at 2.35pm, with the return flight to St Mary’s landing at approximately 4.15pm.
March 21st will be slightly different due to the start of the summer schedule.
Residents will depart St Mary’s on the Islander aircraft at 8.45am to arrive in Truro at around 9.55am. The taxi will then pick up from the taxi rank at 3.15pm with residents due to arrive back to St Mary’s by around 4.55pm.
