As previously announced, we will be welcoming iconic Tasmanian brands Cascade Brewery, Liv-Eat and Coal River Farm to the terminal. As a result, all food and beverage outlets will be temporarily closed, and we will be working closely with these businesses to ensure they are open ahead of the busy Christmas travel period.
In the meantime, a selection of sandwiches and deli items, a limited hot food menu and hot and cold beverages will be available at a temporary pop up outlet in our departures lounge. Additionally, a cart with grab and go food and beverage options will be set up in our arrivals hall. Snacks and beverages can also be purchased through our vending machines and retail outlets.
We are mindful that undertaking works while maintaining operations will cause some congestion and construction noise within certain parts of the terminal. We will do everything we can to minimise any inconvenience to the travelling public and ask that you please bear with us as we grow for the future.
The increase in bays will allow the airport to better accommodate off schedule arrivals and departures, and decrease the likelihood of flight delays due to an unserviceable aircraft occupying a parking bay.
The additional bays will also provide provisions for the appropriate infrastructure to park and service international aircraft, bringing Hobart Airport a step closer to offering international opportunities by the end of 2020.
