Facts about Hobart International Airport (HBA):

  • The development would also provide car parking for over 2,000 cars and road works will most likely be conducted on Holyman Avenue to ensure that traffic flow into the airport itself is not affected.
  • The closest airport to Hobart International Airport (HBA) is Launceston Airport (LST), which is located 91 miles (146 kilometers) N of HBA.
  • The airport has seen strong passenger growth in the last few years, primarily due to the increase in services from low-cost carriers.
  • The furthest airport from Hobart International Airport (HBA) is Corvo Airport (CVU), which is nearly antipodal to Hobart International Airport (meaning Hobart International Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from Corvo Airport), and is located 12,207 miles (19,645 kilometers) away in Corvo Island, Azores, Portugal.
  • The airport has purchased land from the Tasmanian Government in the southern part of the airport for future development of further operational facilities.
  • During April 2007, the Hobart Airport's public relations firm confirmed they had submitted plans of the project to the Federal Government for assessment.
  • Hobart International Airport handled 1,855,849 passengers last year.
  • Because of Hobart International Airport's relatively low elevation of 13 feet, planes can take off or land at Hobart International Airport at a lower air speed than at airports located at a higher elevation. This is because the air density is higher closer to sea level than it would otherwise be at higher elevations.
  • Hobart International Airport (HBA) currently has only 1 runway.
  • The international terminal was opened in 1983 to facilitate Trans-Tasman air traffic.
  • On 11 June 1998, the airport was privatised on a 99-year lease, being purchased by Hobart International Airport Pty Ltd, a Tasmanian Government-owned company operated by the Hobart Ports Corporation.
  • Prior to the existence of the airport, the region was served by Cambridge Airport, a small airport located close to the existing site.
