HOBART INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Hobart Airport, 17 km east of the Tasmanian
capital, is excellently located to service the
East Antarctic.
It is the home base for regular summerseason flights to a blue-ice runway at
Wilkins Aerodrome near Casey Station.
Hobart Airport is a category two
international airport with a single 12/30
runway of 2,251 metres.
To provide greater flexibility for Antarctic
aviation, a project to extend the runway by
500m was completed in February 2018.
The airport is a 24 hour curfew-free
airport and provides a full range of
services including fuel handling, customs,
immigration and biosecurity services,
ground handling, and passenger and
crew handling.
