From the Surface to the Sky

Zelda and Loftwing amiibo - Return to Sky
While on the Surface, using the Zelda & Loftwing amiibo will let you teleport to the Sky on the spot. This feature can be used inside dungeons, so if you run out of items, it would be a good idea to return and replenish your items in Skyloft.

While on the Sky, using the Zelda & Loftwing amiibo will quickly return you back from where you flew from the Surface.

Normally, you can only choose the landing point by picking a location of a Bird Statue, but with the new amiibo, you can go back from anywhere you like!
