Skybus says their bookings for the 2013 season are “significantly up” on last year.

The announcement by chief executive, Jeff Marston, comes days before the company launch an expanded service to Exeter. The company say it has become an increasingly popular route for Skybus customers.

Skybus intends to operate three of the 60-minute flights daily between Exeter and St Mary’s from Monday to Saturday until 23rd March, increasing to up to four a day from 25th March and then up to five a day from 25th May until 31st August.

Last year there was just one weekday and two Saturday flights from Exeter.

The company say that they will shortly take delivery of a fourth Twin Otter aircraft to add to its fleet of six aircraft, which will increase capacity for flights on routes to Exeter, Newquay and Land’s End.

Passengers flying to Scilly from Exeter will be able to park at that airport at a reduced rate, when this season’s services start on Monday.

The Steamship Company has negotiated the price, which can only be accessed when booking through their travel centre.

Matt Roach, managing director of Exeter airport says they anticipate the highest number of passengers on the route in the airport’s 75 year history.
