As domestic flying is set to increase through the state, Launceston Airport has unveiled new
hygiene measures in response to COVID-19.Now there’s hand sanitiser units located inside all terminal entrances and bathroom facilities, plus
next to lifts and stairways.

More than 450 physical distancing signs remind travellers to keep at least 1.5 metres away from
each other, supported by PA announcements in Arrivals and Departures.

The airport has also increased the frequency of cleaning high touch points such as lift buttons, and
handrails, check-in desks and security trays.

Launceston Airport Chief Andrew Gardiner said he looked forward to welcoming travellers back.
“The past couple of months have been tough but Tasmanians have done a great job at suppressing
COVID-19, leading to an increase in domestic flying in the coming weeks,” said Mr Gardiner.

“We can’t wait to welcome tourists and visitors back to the northern part of the state and we are
pleased to enable domestic connections for Tasmanians.

“Our new hygiene measures will ensure travellers can clean their hands at every stage of the
passenger journey, and our physical distancing signage reminds everyone in the terminal about
spacing requirements.

“Of course if anyone is feeling unwell the best advice is to stay home and not travel.”
