Penzance Heliport was located 1.1 km northeast of Penzance, Cornwall.The heliport hosted scheduled flights to the Isles of Scilly, with a connection to the railway network at Penzance railway station by a special bus service. The heliport had a single concrete landing pad. The heliport was officially closed on 31 October 2012. The heliport was opened formally on 1 September 1964 by Councillor Alfred Beckerleg, the Mayor of Penzance with the Lady Mayoress. Due to the high costs of maintaining the service and falling passenger numbers, British International Helicopters ceased the operation of the helicopter route on 31 October 2012.The company announced that it intended to sell the Heliport to a supermarket chain and relocate to another site in West Cornwall to raise funds, although no suitable alternative site was found in time to save the service. In early April 2013, demolition work on the main terminal buildings began, and by September 2013, nothing remains of the former heliport, with a supermarket chain now dominating the site. The airlines which served the heliport was British International Helicopters. Destinations which were connected are St. Mary's and Tresco.
