Located in the suburb of Cambridge, approximately 15km northeast of Tasmania's capital city Hobart, the Hobart Airport is an international airport that is the ninth busiest airport in Australia and thanks to an increase in low-case air carrier services, the airport has experienced a strong growth in passengers ranking it Australia's second fastest growing airport. Featuring a combined domestic and international terminal, the Hobart Airport is predominantly serviced by Tiger Airways, Qantas, Jetstar and Virgin Australia. Although the last regular international service departed for Christchurch in New Zealand in 1998, the airport continues to maintain immigration and customs facilities for receiving international aircraft. Set on 565ha of land, the airport's location on a narrow peninsula means all take-offs and landings fly over bodies of water no matter their direction of departure or approach. Thanks to the area around the airport remaining mostly unpopulated, services are able to operate curfew-free.
