Royal Mail Likely To Switch To Skybus From August

It’s likely that mail will be carried over to Scilly on Skybus in the future after British International Helicopters declined to pitch for the contract.

The helicopters currently carry letters and parcels but Tony Jones, Chief Executive of BIH, told ScillyToday that they haven’t entered into detailed contracts previously for carrying post and they don’t want to now.

Tony says they’d rather give priority to passengers and their baggage.

The contract will run from August.

A Royal Mail spokesman told us that the contract is currently out to tender and has not been signed yet. They can’t say who has expressed an interest.

Steamship Company Chief Executive, Jeff Marsten, had nothing to add.
