British International says it will continue flights from Penzance to the Isles of Scilly until the end of the season.

Bosses were moving the helicopter service to Newquay in June, so Sainsbury's could build a new store on the heliport at Eastern Green.

Tony Jones, the Managing Director at British International Helicopters,  said:

"We are pleased to be able to give existing and new customers certainty regarding our 2012 flight arrangements and be able to reassure them that the service will be uninterrupted fromPenzancefor another season.

“I would like to thank Sainsbury’s for their flexibility in agreeing to this later date. Throughout our negotiations with them, they have been understanding of both our and the community’s requirements.”


Ben Littman, regional development executive at Sainsbury’s said:

“We were asked by BIH if we would allow Penzance heliport to operate for a further season. We were happy to agree in principle to this as we appreciate that minimising disruption to the service and its passengers is paramount for BIH. It just remains for us to establish the contractual details of the arrangements.”
