Direct flights to King and Flinders Islands
On 17 September 2020, the Tasmanian Government announced new direct flights from Hobart to King and Flinders Islands.
Sharp Airlines will be operating three services per week to each island on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday on its 18 seat aircraft. It is the first time flights have been offered as a regular passenger transport service to the islands direct from Hobart.
There will be early arrival times on Wednesdays and Fridays and a later departure from King Island on Sundays – maximising the opportunities for golf.
- Flights from Hobart to King Island start at $460 return
- Flights from Hobart to Flinders Island start at $478 return
The first flights start on 30 September ahead of the school holiday period.
The government is supporting these services for an initial 18 week trial period, if the demand remains then the services could be offered on regular basis.
Tourism Tasmania will be promoting the flights through the Make Yourself at Home campaign with print ads, content and a special lift-out booklet on Tasmania's island experiences in newspapers statewide.
