Passengers Entering Hobart Airport

The draft master plan for the expansion of the Hobart Airport has been released, with the developments allowing for higher passenger numbers and additional freight capacity.

The Hobart International Airport’s 2022 Draft Master Plan sets out a strong vision for expansion and growth.

The proposed development will cater for the current and projected growth of passenger numbers, in addition to realising the opportunities for it to become an important strategic hub for the nation in respect to Antarctic and Defence requirements.

The proposed upgrading of the runway surface will also allow larger aircraft that will increase the state’s attraction and capability from a freight and passenger perspective.

Upgrading the airport will potentially allow Tasmania to get more in-demand product to even more markets around the globe.

Tasmanian Premier, Jeremy Rockliff, said it is a fantastic sign of confidence in not only Tasmania’s world-class tourism industry, but also its booming trade and exports sector.

“Well done to Norris Carter and the team at Hobart Airport, and I look forward to the community consultation in the months ahead on this exciting development,” Mr Rockliff said.

“The Tasmanian Government will continue to work closely with Hobart International Airport management to realise this vision for the airport, which is one of the state’s most important assets.”

    I was listening to ABC Hobart today. There was (I think) the CEO, of the airport, speaking about the new upgrades to the airport and how there will be shops selling Tasmanian alcohols to the millions of tourists expected to come through the gates. He assumed there would be the usual ‘burger’ joints and I immediately wondered why we assumed that American burger chains would be in OUR airport when we have a number of Tasmanian places operating here. For example, LivEat, Praties, Sandy Bay Bakery. I’m sure there are other reasonably priced food servers we could showcase and truly welcome our tourists to a Tassie flavour as well as all the expensive alcohol on offer.
    Just a thought.

    It is a disgrace that the Drop Off and pickup area is so far from the terminal especially for disabled people who have to drag their cases so far and without any cover when it is raining. Whoever designed this ridiculous area should be made to assist people with their luggage and they might realise their mistake. It is the only terminal that disabled people cannot be dropped at the terminal door

    Dear Miss, Sir,

    My name is Ryan DOS SANTOS, student from Swinburne University of Technology in exchange and coming from France.

    I am contacting you because my group and I have to work on an aviation project, mostly about the expansion of this airport. Do you know if it is possible to get contact with people you may know about this project ?

    You can find there the content of what the project is: «Each Project Team is required to select a successful Aviation project (past or present).
    Examples can be obtained, by your Project Team, through inspecting relevant websites, e.g. (i) ICAO, IATA; (ii) regulators such as CASA, CAA UK, CAAS and the FAA; (iii) ATS providers such as Airservices Australia; FAA; and Eurocontrol; (iv) airport operators (national; international; regional; or general aviation) such as Melbourne; Launceston; Mildura; Hong Kong, Heathrow; (v) airlines, such as Qantas, Virgin Australia, Tiger, Air New Zealand; (vi) aircraft manufacturers such as Airbus and Boeing, (vii) the aerospace industry; (viii) industry associations; and (ix) Government Departments etc. »

    Best regards,
