Information for those needing help & assistance

If you need extra help at the airport, we’re here to assist.


If you need a wheelchair to help you out to your plane, or around the airport, please contact the airline you’re travelling with. It’s better to give them advance notice about the help you need, so they’re ready to help you.

Disabled parking at the airport

If you have a disabled parking permit on your vehicle we’ve saved you the most convenient parking spots in the drop-off/pick-up lane.  For security reasons someone needs to stay with the car at all times.

If you prefer to come in to the terminal to say your hellos or goodbyes, and you have a disabled parking permit, use one of the dedicated disabled car spaces in the main car park. These are located close to the terminal with convenient access for passengers with disabilities.

If you need extra help for people with significant mobility issues, please contact our kerbside security staff on 0407 780 083 before arriving at the airport.

If you are a passenger and require assistance inside the terminal building or with getting onto your flight please contact your airline.

Toilet facilities at the airport

Wheelchair accessible toilets are located inside the airport building – follow the signs for the toilets outside the security clearance area or in the departure lounge.

Audio Loop for hearing devices

For our visitors with hearing aids, the Hobart Airport building is equipped with an Audio Loop that helps you to hear what’s going on without the background noise.
