To Begin

Keeping you safe and secure is our number one priority.  

We appreciate that as demand for travel to Tasmania continues to grow, the traffic flow to and from the terminal is becoming more congested.

As part of our commitment to improving the customer experience, and to enhance the security of our terminal precinct, we will be commencing works to realign our road network and segregate private vehicles, commercial vehicles and public transport.

The works will provide a safer environment for all airport users and make the transition through our terminal forecourt as seamless as possible.

We have seen a steady increase in security measures in the aviation industry over the past 15 to 20 years.

While we are lucky to feel safe and secure in Tasmania for the most part, it is important that we recognise and take steps to mitigate any potential threats to safety at our airport.

This is particularly important as we continue to grow and open up international flight opportunities to and from Hobart.

Over the coming months travellers can expect to see changes to the entrance to the terminal, with upgrades to existing infrastructure as well as the addition of new safety measures including bollards and traffic management barriers.

Phase one will see changes to our main car park area commencing in early August. During this time, entry to Main Car Park South will be available via Gatty Street while a new section of road is constructed.

The play area includes digital screens with interactive educational games, interesting facts and figures about native Tasmanian wildlife and animal sculptures along with a mural by local Tasmanian artist RJ Alexander that celebrate the state’s natural environment.
