Launceston Airport in Tasmania has unveiled its $2 million terminal reconfiguration which  incorporates a new layout, and additional toilet and shower facilities in the check-in hall.

The rezoning of the terminal builds on the airport’s recent transformation that includes offering more local produce, enhanced seating, and free Wi-Fi and charging stations.

Launceston Airport partnered with Launceston-based firm Vos Construction to deliver the seven-month works program.

General Manager Launceston Airport, Paul Hodgen, said the terminal reconfiguration will improve the traveller experience and make boarding more efficient, eliminating that last minute dash to the gate.  

‚ÄúI‚Äôm pleased to reveal the new arrangements which now incorporate a re-orientated screening facility located immediately after check-in. This will allow travellers to take full advantage of our award-winning dining and retail offering after passing through security, reducing some of the stress of travel and making the whole process more relaxing and enjoyable,‚ÄĚ said Mr Hodgen.

‚ÄúRecognising that moments matter, the changes also allow non-travellers to accompany their loved ones through security, which will give passengers more time to say farewell. The reconfiguration also enables non-travellers to greet arriving passengers‚Äô right at the gate.‚ÄĚ

Mr Hodgen said the changes unveiled have set the airport up for future growth.

‚ÄúLaunceston Airport‚Äôs recent investment in additional X-ray equipment allows the airport to accommodate further growth, creating a better flow during scheduled peak periods,‚ÄĚ said Mr Hodgen.

‚ÄúIt is good to see our August passenger traffic statistics up by two per cent on the same time last year, and it‚Äôs certainly great to be able to deliver a much enhanced customer experience to all those using our facilities,‚ÄĚ said Mr Hodgen.
