Launceston Airport's first quarter passenger results

 Launceston Airport has achieved a 3 per cent increase in passengers over the last 12 months despite a 1 per cent decline for the first quarter of the 2015 financial year.

 Launceston Airport General Manager, Mr Paul Hodgen said that weak Australia-wide domestic travel demand has contributed to lower passengers during the quarter.

 “We are however continuing to invest in redeveloping the airport, with a record capital investment program scheduled for 2015. We’re transforming access including road infrastructure and delivering our first undercover car park,” said Mr Hodgen.

 “Investments in airfield safety and improved terminal facilities are also planned, which will see more shopping and dining facilities, bringing a superior customer experience and a greater sense of Tasmania to Launceston Airport.”

 “These plans will ensure that Launceston Airport continues to support tourism in the region and cater for future passenger growth, in support of an aggressive state tourism target to attract 1.5 million visitors by 2020.”

Launceston Airport’s draft Master Plan was released on 27 October and is available for public comment until 30 January, 2015. The draft Master Plan outlines the long term vision for the airport.
