New Terminal Announced At Land’s End Airport

The Isles of Scilly Steamship Company has started a 40-week project to improve the passenger terminal at Land’s End Airport.

The current buildings will be knocked down and, by the start of next season, there’ll be a new café catering for 30 people with views over the airfield and Longships lighthouse.

Passengers will be able to use full disabled facilities and internet access.

Better baggage-handling facilities and a dedicated arrivals area will also form part of the upgrade. The air traffic controllers are currently using a temporary tower while they await their new facility.

The airport car parking will be made more secure as part of the plan.

Steamship Company Chief Executive, Jeff Marston, says the airport is a core part of their business and the company want to secure its long-term future.

He says the existing passenger terminal building won’t be demolished until the new building is completed next year.
