The operators of a new daily helicopter service to the Scillies say it WILL go ahead on Monday after all. Yesterday the Isles of Scilly Steamship Company was told that the route between Land's End and St Mary's would be halted because environmental checks had not been carried out. But on Saturday afternoon a company spokesman confirmed flights would run as scheduled pending further discussions.
I would like to thank everyone on our first flights for their patience and understanding and I am sorry they were subjected to unnecessary uncertainty, which was for reasons that were outside our control. We very much look forward to welcoming them on Monday.
On Friday, the Council of The Isles of Scilly had issued a statement saying flights would be suspended because the operator had failed to provide sufficient information for an adequate environmental assessement to comply with wildlife conservation laws.
