This week, as part of a greater City Deal announcement, the Prime Minister of Australia announced Federal Government support for Hobart Airport to the tune of $82.3M over the life of the City Deal.

The Hobart City Deal is a shared 10-year vision between the Australian and Tasmanian Governments and aims to support Hobart, and Tasmania more broadly, in meeting growth expectations over the next decade.

The $82.3M will directly support the provision of border services at Hobart Airport including customs and immigration infrastructure as well as quarantine staff over this 10-year period.

We continue to plan for the development of a terminal to meet growth domestically, and to allow for international opportunity by the end of 2020.

“We’re building better facilities and a better airport to serve our community”
