To Begin

As one of the fastest growing airports in the country with six per cent growth year on year for the past four years, we developed plans for a $4.5 million refurbishment of the departures lounge to enhance customer experience and passenger comfort.  

Works began in September 2018 and were completed by December, just in time for the airport’s busiest period with 20,000 extra passengers passing through the terminal over Christmas.

The airport remained fully operational throughout the development phase with minimal disruption to passengers travelling at this time.

The enhancement sees passengers benefiting from an additional 170 seats, a refurbished bar and café with new food and beverage options as well as renovated amenities in the main departures lounge.

The refurbishment also opened up an additional 230 square metres of usable space and saw the addition of live greenery to improve functionality and create a more enjoyable environment for travellers.

Whilst planning is continuing for the longer-term redevelopment of our terminal, we are committed to enhancing the customer experience and are confident this refresh will make travelling more comfortable for Tasmanians and visitors to our state.
