The Isles of Scilly Steamship Group is helping islanders to enjoy a hassle free Christmas this year by offering two special day shopping trips to Truro with Skybus.

The trips, which are running on December 7th and 14th, are designed to help residents complete their Christmas shopping easily on the mainland, and give them the opportunity to spend over four hours shopping in the city.

Tickets are on sale to all islanders and include return flights from St Mary’s Airport to Newquay Airport, and taxi transfers between the airport and Truro city centre, priced at £90 per person.

Sharon Sandercock, Marketing and Communications Manager for the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group, said: “It’s important to us to support the residents of the Isles of Scilly whenever we can, and the Travel Club we run enables us to provide major savings on travel to people living on the islands all year round.

“It’s exciting that this year we are also offering all Scilly residents an opportunity to do their Christmas shopping in Truro for an affordable price.

“The special Skybus day trips mean islanders can spend a significant amount of time shopping in the city without having to worry about organising travel or accommodation separately, taking some of the stress out of Christmas.”

Both day trips will run on the same schedule with the Skybus flight leaving St. Mary’s Airport at 9.15 and passengers arriving in Truro, via transfer from Newquay Airport, at 10.20, giving them around four hours to do their shopping.

Return transfers will depart the city from the Truro Coinage Hall taxi rank at 14.45 and passengers will have returned to St Mary’s Airport by approximately 16.30.
