Hobart International Airport

Hobart International Airport

Hobart International Airport is the primary passenger and freight airport of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. The Airport is located on the Eastern shore of the Derwent River, near the semi-rural/industrial suburb of Cambridge; approximately 20 kilometres from the city centre via the Tasman Highway.


The airport opened in 1956, replacing the nearby Cambridge Aerodrome as the aerial gateway to Hobart. At this time, it was known, not as Hobart International Airport, but as Lanherne Airport, after the name of the property on which it was built. This name, however, has now fallen into disuse. In its first full year of operation the airport processed 120,086 passengers and 11,724 tonnes of freight, ranking fifth in Australia.

Although the airport has not had a regular scheduled international passenger service since the 1990s (to Christchurch, New Zealand), the official name of Hobart International Airport remains; Skytraders conducts regular flights to Antarctica on behalf of the Australian Antarctic Division using an Airbus A319.[1] As such, the airport maintains its international terminal building, customs and immigration facilities.

The airport’s Board has overseen the investment of $23 million in new passenger facilities over the past three years. As a result, the facility, officially launched today by Premier Paul Lennon, is more than ready to cope with expected increases in worldwide air passenger traffic.

Further major redevelopment and terminal expansion works at Hobart Airport to ensure passenger safety and to ensure facilities are at a standard appropriate for a capital city airport are set to commence in early September.
