Tasmania has four main airports, located at Hobart, Launceston, Devonport and Burnie (Wynyard) along with King Island Airport and Whitemark Airport (Flinders Island).

Tasmania is serviced by two domestic Regular Passenger Transport (RPT) airlines (Qantas and Virgin Blue). On 25 May 2004, a third RPT will service Tasmania (Jetstar). There are five regional RPT airlines that service Tasmania (Airlines of Tasmania, Island Airlines Tasmania, King Island Airlines, REX and Tasair).

In addition to scheduled services of domestic and regional airlines, a wide range of other activities are undertaken by the aviation industry including charter, agricultural, training and private services. In 2002, general aviation activity in Tasmania totalled 25,000 hours.

Further information on air transport activity including general information on air transport, passenger and freight service is located on the Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources (DIER) web site at http://www.transport.tas.gov.au/. A map of Tasmania's interstate airports is also available from the DIER web site under Air > Air transport information > General information.
