Extra Information About This Airport

It is tasmania’s primary airport, owned by the federal government and administered by the tasmanian gateway consortium on a 99 year lease located near cambridge, some 17 kilometers northeast of hobart’s core business district, and serves as a domestic and international airport.

Arrivals at HBA:

Arriving there is easier than at any other international airport since, similar to launceston airport, it is relatively small and simple to operate. The arrivals area is small and dominated by people waiting to receive passengers, drivers with signs, and racks of promotional leaflets. The luggage will be loaded onto the single carousel. Arriving travelers will find baggage carousels at the northwest end, with one reserved for foreign arrivals if necessary. 

All airline’s check in counters and self service kiosks are positioned in the terminal building’s central area. There are regulations for bringing fruit and vegetables into the state, and the charming sniffer dog will inspect your hand luggage before proceeding to the carousel.


It has a single, connected terminal that handles international and domestic flights. Originally designed with two terminals, they were combined in 2007 to suit new security rules, and the refurbished terminal was even recognized for its design! Currently, the airport is considering as a large expansion to accommodate future demand.

Domestic Terminal:

This domestic terminal which is opened in 1976, has expanded over time to accommodate all airlines under one roof. Check in and departures are located at the southeast end, where a qantas club has already been created, with plans to expand the lounge and apron to accommodate several narrow body aircraft, as well as a few tiny wide bodies.

International Terminal:

This terminal opened in 1983, and once saw regular flights but faced a service gap from 1998 to 2020. Today, it primarily handles domestic flights alongside air new zealand’s seasonal auckland service and SkyTrader’s antarctic adventures. While equipped for large wide bodies, its single dedicated parking bay caters mainly to narrow body aircraft.

Freight & General Aviation:

HBA serves both passengers and freight. Two dedicated freight areas serve airlines such as qantas and virgin Australia, with qantas even using jet freighters.
