The Government welcomes news that the Federal Government has approved Hobart Airport’s Master Plan, clearing the way for a $100 million investment to go ahead, which includes the much-anticipated runway extension.
This is a fantastic outcome for Tasmania. It will help drive visitor numbers, which will create jobs right around the State and further cement Tasmania’s place as a must-see destination.
There has already been a massive increase in air access to Tasmania recently. Seat capacity has increased and new flights and new routes have been added, which benefits Tasmanians through greater choice and lower prices.
Now that the investment in Hobart Airport is one step closer, we have a fantastic opportunity to continue to grow key markets for Tasmanian exporters and tourism operators.
The Tasmanian Government is committed to working with our airport operators, including Hobart Airport, to grow our economy and create jobs.
