Photography & Filming

All filming or stills photography at Launceston Airport must receive written approval from the designated authority at Launceston Airport at least two weeks prior to the requested date of the shoot.  Media filming requests are exempt from this rule.

Safety and Security
Launceston Airport is committed to maintaining quality safety and security at the Airport and may decline the use of the Airport to film or photograph for safety, security or operational reasons.

Launceston Airport reserves the right to refuse permission to any organisation or person, or to place restrictions on any organisation or person, to film or photograph at the Airport.  It is therefore important that these guidelines and in particular the Terms and Conditions listed below are complied with.

Permitted Locations
Filming requests will be considered according to:

  • the type of filming or photography proposed
  • the potential impact on airport operations including but not limited to aircraft, passenger, luggage and vehicle movements
  • the potential impact on our airline partners, tenants and customers
  • the proposed purpose or use of the footage/imagery
  • the day, time, duration and size of the shoot
  • any OH&S implications

All requests to film must be made by filling out the application form (available below) at least two weeks prior to the requested filming date. 


The Launceston Airport filming fee schedule has been determined based on the level of required organisation prior to the shoot and facilitation on the day.
