When the helicopter service to the Isles of Scilly ceased in Oct 2012, an alternate link was sought. In 2017 the Company, which also owns and operates the Scillonian III ferry link to the islands announced its intention to start the Island Helicopters service from St Just, using the AW169. The site is near the cliffs of the western Penwith peninsula, some 5nm from Penzance railway station. It plans to operate services to St Marys (and possibly Tresco), in competition with the service announced by Penzance Heliport Ltd. The Island Helicopters service is due to commence in May 2018.
