Private airstrips closed to interstate aircrafts
- 25 Mar, 2020
Michael Ferguson, Minister for Infrastructure and Transport
To keep Tasmanians safe against the spread of COVID-19, aeroplanes and aircrafts that commence their flight outside of Tasmania are prohibited from landing on private airstrips in the state.
It is absolutely crucial everyone adheres to all the restrictions that are in place to reduce the threat of this virus.
Our messages are necessarily crystal clear:
- Do not travel to Tasmania unless you are returning home or you are an essential traveller. If you are returning home from interstate, you cannot fly into a private airstrip.
- If you are a Tasmanian returning home via the Spirit of Tasmania or on a commercial flight, you must self-isolate for 14 days.
We all need to play our part for the safety of our state, by staying home as much as possible and adhering to the social distancing guidelines.
