LinkedIn +

Hobart Airport, in Tasmania, Australia, has unveiled its plans to invest A$4.5m (US$3.2m) in the refurbishment of its departures lounge, including 170 additional seats, renovated amenities, a refurbished bar and café, and new food and beverage (F&B) options. Works will commence by mid-September with completion scheduled for mid-December 2018.

Sarah Renner, CEO, Hobart Airport, said, “We appreciate the departures hall is in need of a refresh. While planning is continuing for the longer-term redevelopment of our terminal, we will be completing our enhanced departures project prior to Christmas in order to deliver an improved customer experience over the peak season.

“At the heart of the design is our absolute desire and focus to create a sense of place, something that is inherently Tasmanian and something that our community can be proud of.”

Renner explained that the work would be completed in several phases, helping to maintain the full operation of the facility: “We are mindful that undertaking works while maintaining operations has the potential to cause some congestion within certain parts of the terminal. We will do everything we can to minimize disruption to the traveling public.”
