In 1984 the company expanded by developing Skybus, an alternative to travel by sea. Skybus began scheduled commercial passenger flights in April 1987 launching the flights with a Britton Norman Islander aircraft. Skybus now has a fleet of six planes; three De Havilland DHC-6 Twin Otters and three Britten Norman Islanders.
Skybus operates regular scheduled flights to the Isles of Scilly from Land's End, Newquay, Exeter, Bristol and Southampton.
The Twin otter planes offer a maximum of 19 seats and the Islanders 8 seats.
