The start to your holiday

A proper island welcome

From the moment you arrive at St Mary’s Airport, we’re there to ensure the last step of your journey is hassle-free. Whether you’re arriving by helicopter or plane; staying on St Mary’s or heading to an off-island, we’ll provide a proper welcome to the Isles of Scilly.

Island Transfers launched in autumn 2022 to provide all airport transfers for the Isles of Scilly. However, we’re far from new to providing airport transfers on the islands.

Owner Delwin Thompson will be a familiar face to most who have arrived on the islands over the last 25 years, from providing heliport transfers in the days of the former helicopter service to exclusive Tresco transfers; Penzance Helicopter transfers from 2020 and now Skybus transfers too since December 2022. 

We’re trusted as the sole airport transfers’ provider on St Mary’s.

One thing has remained consistent over those 25 years: our unfailing commitment to meeting all passengers with a warm welcome, a friendly smile, and a helping hand.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Isles of Scilly!



We meet every flight that arrives on St Mary’s, so there’s no need to make a booking in advance. Our clearly uniformed drivers will meet you in Arrivals, direct you to our vehicle, help with your luggage, and whisk you on your way.

When we reach your accommodation, we’ll make the necessary arrangements to collect you in perfect time for your return flight.

 However, we understand sometimes it’s good to know everything’s organised, so you’re welcome to let us know your travel details in advance for peace of mind by clicking below – if you wish.

Comfort & accessibility


We’ve carefully chosen our fleet of minibuses to ensure we can get you where you need to go in comfort, safety and style…

Our fleet is modern and carefully cared for and selected to ensure safety and accessibility. Our vehicles are fully equipped with height-adjustable seat belts for passengers of all ages and are serviced and maintained to the highest standards.

We’re also working on going greener over the coming years. Our new buses are either Electric Vehicles or use the latest low-emissions Diesel engines. As we replace our fleet over the coming years, we’ll be working hard to continue minimising our environmental impact.

Vauxhall Vivaro EV

We have one Vauxhall Vivaro Electric Vehicle, which carries up to six passengers in comfort and style in leather seats with a panoramic sunroof giving a feeling of space and luxury. The sliding doors give ease of access, and the small vehicle size means we can reach all areas of St Mary’s, including through the narrow Garrison archway. We’re proud that this vehicle is 100% electric.

Citroen Relay

Our three Citroen Relay minibuses are our largest vehicles, able to carry up to thirteen passengers with luggage. These vehicles include extra features to enhance accessibility, such as large sliding doors with retractable steps, additional grab handles and enhanced interior lighting. Being brand new, these diesel vehicles meet the latest European emissions standards, helping keep Scilly’s air clean.

Do I need to book in advance?

Not for your arrival on St Mary’s – we meet every flight arrival. You will need to book your departure pickup, so we know when and where to collect you. We will arrange this upon arrival and give you a handy reminder card.

Which flights do you meet?

We are the sole transfers provider on St Mary’s for Skybus and Penzance Helicopters and we meet all their flights.

What happens when I arrive at St Mary’s Airport?

Our friendly drivers will meet you in the small Arrivals area (it’s tiny, so you’ll have no problem spotting us!) All our drivers wear uniforms, so they are easy to spot. They will assist you with your luggage to our minibus.

Will you take me right to my St Mary’s accommodation?

Wherever you’re staying on St Mary’s, we’ll take you right to your accommodation (we even have a special small minibus that can get through The Garrison arch!)

What if I’m staying on an off-island?

If you’re staying on Tresco, Bryher, St Martin’s or St Agnes, we will meet you at St Mary’s Airport and take you to the quay for your onward boat transfer (you’ll usually need to arrange this in advance with the relevant boat service).

Can you carry children? Do you have car seats?

We can carry all passengers, including babies, toddlers and young children. All our vehicles include height-adjustable seat belts.

Do you carry dogs and other pets?

Yes, we welcome dogs and other pets.

What if my flight is delayed?

We’re in regular contact with flight operators and always meet you on arrival, even if your flight is delayed.

On departure from the islands, we’ll still collect you at your pre-arranged departure time even if there are delays, as your flight operator will need you to wait at the airport. We know this can be frustrating, but it’s to allow flights to resume quickly if the weather clears.

If your flight is cancelled, please get in touch with us to let us know, and we’ll arrange to collect you for your new travel arrangements.

How do I pay?

We accept payment by card/contactless and in cash. You’re welcome to pay for a single journey if you wish, but booking a return is slightly cheaper.

Can I book you as a taxi during my stay?

As we’re busy with arrivals and departures throughout the day, we do not operate a general taxi service. There are two great Taxi companies on St Mary’s – Toots Taxi and DJ Cabs.
