Hobart Terminal Redevelopment

By bmc | Apr 09, 2019, 01:00 PM
Big news in the paper here today.  The Hobart terminal redevelopment document lists the creation of a 2 level departure lounge at HBA with an "upper floor" with  "two lounges for airline use".  The document lists completion of this stage by December 2020. I wonder if anyone else has more news on this.

Is this the same Hobart that has a long history of being belligerent to airlines and customers?

If you're lucky you might see the design phase finished by December 2020...

Haven't they already "redesigned" the current terminal? Took about 4 years, with a massive cost. I was absolutely stunned with the design, there are a few more chairs and pot plants around!!

Would like to see aero bridges. Hobart’s Weather can be quite unpleasant when walking in the rain.

That would be nice but unfortunately from the news articles I've read aerobridges aren't planned.

Manhattan Kansas is tiny airport with 5 flight a day and has a single aero bridge from the ground floor Hobart is there times the size so why not a couple of aero bridges from the current boarding area.

No aerobridges in the plan, but the $200 million redevelopment will include a doubling of the terminal footprint. The upper level mezzanine floor will be used for a new Qantas Club and a lounge for “other airlines.” There will also be customs admin, etc. on this mezzanine level for possible international flights to New Zealand and/or south east Asia.

This can’t come soon enough, the current terminal is barely coping. As we speak, a sixth and seventh aircraft parking bay are being created to cater for the current rapid growth in flights. These extra spaces are being created by having aircraft pushed back instead of powering out while taxiing on departure like is done on the Gold Coast.

That was just a new arrivals hall, but even now that’s hardly coping.

Tenders are open for the likes of Virgin and QANTAS to open a lounge.
The mezzanine level is supposedly for border control etc.

At the moment it a third world facility. Until it gets aerobridges it will remain as one of the worst in Australia.

While it is not the most modern thing in the world, Hobart Airport is NOT third world. Hyperbole is not becoming.

In fact, Hobart is much bigger with up to 60 flights a day in peak times - 30 arrivals and 30 departures some days over summer.

No aeros in Townsville, OOL either and both of them have considerably higher rainfall than Hobart (2nd driest state capital after Adelaide)

Townsville does have aerobridges and the Gold Coast is installing them in their new plan. Darwin and Cairns domestic also use aerobridges.

Must have been a while since you have been to Townsville Tasclean, 4 aero bridges were done with the 2004 redevelopment.

TSV has aerobridges but, like HBA, VA has been unable to get the airport owners to release space for a Lounge.
