First Step for Hobart Airport Upgrade

New Location for Transport Providers

Today marks a small but important first step in Hobart Airport’s $200 million terminal upgrade, with commercial vehicles to arrive at a new location from today.

Hobart Airport CEO Norris Carter said taxis, Ubers and SkyBus will now arrive at a newly constructed double lane.

“It’s going to be a big 2024 for Hobart Airport, with works to soon commence on our $200 million terminal upgrade,” Mr Carter said.

“As part of this, we are redeveloping our airport precinct which will allow for increased parking availability, improved road systems and to make space for the all-important doubling of the size of the terminal.

“From today, our commercial transport operators including taxis, Ubers and the SkyBus will have a new location just a short distance from their existing spot, and right next to the public pick-up and drop off lane.

“New wayfinding and advertising will also be rolled out to ensure the travelling public can easily find the location of their preferred commercial transport provider.

“We’re very excited for the year ahead, and to commence the terminal upgrade that will meet the needs of the growing number of travellers arriving in Tasmania. As the major aviation gateway into Tasmania, we welcome around 2.5 million passengers a year and those number are only set to grow with an anticipated 3.5 million arrivals by 2030.”
