We know travel instructions can be confusing at the moment, so we've brought together some important information.

When you’re ready to fly, we’re ready too.


In co-operation across the Australian aviation industry, we've established a Government approved COVID safe flying plan including physical distancing and enhanced hygiene measures. We all share in the responsibility to stop the spread of COVID-19. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation as we all adapt to these new measures.

Wearing face masks at airports and on commercial domestic flights

Face masks must be worn by everyone aged 12 years and older who:

  • is in an indoor area of the airport that is open to passengers or a member of the public

  • is boarding a commercial domestic aircraft, including when on the tarmac, and

  • is on board a commercial domestic aircraft in Tasmanian airspace.

This includes airport employees and non-travellers such as people who are greeting, picking up or farewelling others.

You do not need to wear a face mask when in the carpark or when inside a vehicle at the airport (e.g. in a car, taxi, ride-share or bus).

Exemptions

The following people are exempt from wearing a face mask:

  • Children aged 11 years or under do not have to wear or carry face masks but are encouraged to do so, if possible.

  • Anyone who has medical certification (or other documentation by a medical practitioner) of a physical or mental health illness, condition or disability that makes wearing a fitted face mask unsuitable. You may still be encouraged to wear a mask, if possible. If you are exempt from wearing a face mask, you will be required to show evidence from your doctor (ie. medical certificate) if requested by an authorised person at an airport or on an aircraft.

  • People on private aircraft. Except when embarking or disembarking at an airport, you must wear a face mask while in the terminal and crossing the tarmac.
