Proposed Runway Works at Land’s End Airport

The Isles of Scilly Steamship Company would like to extend an invitation to all neighbours, local businesses and interested parties to discuss the hardening of the runways at Land’s End.

This invitation follows the initial meeting held at the Airport on the 19th June and will discuss in more detail the timeframes, the drainage solutions and how the works will be undertaken. These improvements, which will be undertaken later this year, are essential to secure the links to the Isles of Scilly and local employment in West Penwith.More on this news update »Proposed Runway Works at Land’s End Airport
