Tigerair, Jetstar, Qantas and Virgin Australia all offer cheap Melbourne to Hobart flights daily taking approximately 1.5 hours. Due to the brief nature of these domestic Melbourne to Hobart flights your airfare will not include any entertainment or refreshments although you are able to purchase them once you board the plane. Generally airfares will include baggage allowances of up to 7kg or carry-on and 23kg of checked luggage although this does depend on the airline you're flying with and the fare type that you purchase. We recommend you confirm these details at the time of booking your flight to avoid disappointment or any extra charges upon check-in.
