Hobart International Airport serves the city of Hobart in Tasmania, Australia. The airport is owned by Tasmanian Gateway Consortium and is located 17km east of central Hobart. Hobart is served by all major Australian airlines including Qantas, Jetstar, Virgin Blue and Tiger Airways, and is a hub for regional airline Tasair. The airline serves Australia's major east-coast cities of Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane, and regional service is provided by Tasair. No scheduled international service is offered currently from Hobart, although the airport does maintain customs and immigration facilities from earlier international service to New Zealand. Skytraders, an airline supporting the Australian Antarctic Division, is based at Hobart and operates the only international service, operating its Airbus A319 aircraft to Antarctica.

Tiger Australia settles in for medium-term with new director but growth restrictions and lower fares
Tiger Airways Australia is settling in for the medium-term with a re-launched network it has built up, which is now approximately one-third of its Jun-2011 pre-grounding size. The immediate future will see former Virgin Blue executive Andrew David take the reigns from Tony Davis, who is leaving the company.
Tiger is also lowering its lead-in fares to pre-grounding levels, but no headline fares of AUD15 inclusive or zero (plus taxes) have been offered yet, and may not be as long as Tiger faces no price undercutting and seeks to build network volume with requisite approval from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). Its growth outlook is focused on Melbourne Tullamarine, with service resumption from Melbourne Avalon unlikely in the next year.
Faced with severe regulatory restraints following the lifting of a six-week grounding of services, Tiger Airways Australia is drastically simplifying its operation to focus on a single hub at Melbourne Tullamarine and only serving the popular Sydney route. As the airline returns to the skies on 12-Aug-2011, Tiger will suspend 14 routes and drop 10 destinations. This month Tiger will only operate 14% of its pre-grounding flights, but this represents only 8% of its pre-grounding available seat kilometres (ASK). But the carrier is to remain in Australia - perhaps with a re-brand.
Jetstar Group CEO Bruce Buchanan stated the airline is still looking into other airport options in northern Australia, despite the Qantas Group recently reaching a new pricing agreement with Darwin International Airport. According to Mr Buchanan, Darwin is one of the carrier’s most expensive airports and it expects it to become even more expensive in the next few years.
Tasmanian Ports Corporation (Tasports) announced the sale of Hobart Airport (HBA) is progressing to schedule and is expected to be completed this month or early-08. The bidding process is expected to reach a price tag of at least AUD100 million.
Hobart International Airport (HBA), the last state-owned Australian
capital city airport to be privatised, has been put on the market. The Tasmanian
Government (who bought it from the Australian Government in 1999) announced
plans to sell Hobart International Airport in the next six to 12 months.
