Correct! There are a few videos on YouTube of G-LAWX in Penzance doing the Scilly route. Exciting to see a larger helicopter doing the route again and seems far more sensible than running two small helicopters at the same time. Wonder how long it'll be around? Haven't heard many updates about the AW139 delivery that was halted due to COVID.

245 for a day trip for 1 person is a touch on the expensive side, but last year people seemed quite happy to pay a similiar price on the helicopter for Land's End-St Mary's - although I guess some people might have done the helicopter just one way for the novelty and travelled by fixed wing / ship in the other direction
Penzance Helicopters are now offering 125 day returns bookable the day before travel. Details on their Facebook site. Bookable only day before travel.
