Changes to our road network are now in place

Our new pick up/drop off area is now open.
December 5, 2019

Our forecourt works are nearing completion, with significant changes to the way you pick up and drop off passengers now in place.

Drivers will now follow Holyman Avenue, pass under the gantry and turn right into our new dual lane drop off/pick up area.

SkyBus and taxis will continue to pick up passengers outside our Arrivals area on Addison Drive.

Ride share will pick up and drop off in the commercial zone of our new drop off/pick up area.

Please note: The exit from our Premium Car Park onto Loop Road is not yet operational.

Camera traps are also used to monitor the movements and better understand the behaviour of animals in the airport environment.  

Since the installation of camera traps in early 2016, images collected have shown that many threatened species use the environment around and within the airport boundary including the Tasmanian Devil, the Spotted quoll and the Tasmanian bettong.

We recognise our role in protecting the biodiversity of the airport and Tasmania more broadly and are confident this technology will assist us in doing so.

Environment Manager Kirsten Leggett

Initial testing of virtual fencing devices in Tasmania has seen a 50 per cent reduction in road kill deaths over a three-year period and has been instrumental in protecting the remaining Tasmanian Devil population.

The virtual fencing will be monitored by Hobart Airport’s environment team to capture and report data on the rates of roadkill deaths in the area and better understand the behaviour of the animals that call the airport home.
