A spokesperson from the Isles of Scilly Steamship Company says:

“Land’s End Airport is closed for the rest of the week. We will have another inspection of the airfield again on Saturday 5th Jan and update accordingly.

“Skybus flights from Newquay Cornwall Airport are still on hold due to weather.”

Skybus has confirmed that Land’s End Airport hasn’t reopened this morning.

The grass runway remains waterlogged and the airport manager will assess the situation mid morning.

It had been hoped that flights, which have been diverted to Newquay since before Christmas, would start up again today.

Flights from Newquay are also being held this morning, (9am) due to fog.

Euan Rodger at St Mary’s Post Office says outbound mail is being sent to Penzance on the Gry Maritha, which has sailed for the first time this year. No inbound post to Scilly has been received yet.
