"We are here to dedicated and serve the people on the Isles of Scilly and that's what we do, both to the people that live there and the numerous tourists and business people that travel with Skybus through Land's End."

The airport has invited all nieghbours, local businesses and interested parties to view the plans and ask questions on Wednesday 19th June 2013 between 5 pm and 7.30 pm in the main terminal building.
