Hobart International Airport

Transport and Logistics

Justin Mahnig

Hobart Airport, 17 km east of the Tasmanian capital, is excellently located to service the East Antarctic.

We are the home base for regular summer season flights to a blue-ice runway at Wilkins aerodrome near Casey Station.

We are a category one international airport with a single 12/30 runway of 2,727 metres.

We recently completed our 500m runway extension project in December 2017. The new runway length provides greater flexibility for Antarctic aviation.

Our airport is operational 24 hours, is curfew-free and we provide a full range of services including fuel handling, customs, immigration and biosecurity services, ground handling, and passenger and crew handling.

We are committed to developing infrastructure to support customer requirements and to foster growth of Antarctic operations.
