Driving at Hobart International Airport (HBA)

Airports can be complicated places, especially for drivers. But knowing the basics, and getting information in advance about your local airport, can help make sure you’re prepared for your first pickup or dropoff.

Airport regulations

Information for driver-partners

Eligible driver partners are able to pick up and drop off riders traveling to or from Hobart Airport at the Commercial lane in front of the terminal.

How to become eligible for pick-ups at Hobart Airport

To receive trip requests to and from Hobart Airport, you will need to register with the airport by installing the ZipBy app and creating an account linked to Hobart Airport. You’ll need to review and agree to the Hobart Airport Terms and Conditions and ZipBy Driver Terms and Conditions. We recommend you seek independent legal advice before entering into an agreement with the Airport so that you understand what is required of you under that agreement.

Hobart Airport requires drivers to use an access card to enter and exit the commercial lane. There are boom gates, which will open with use of your Hobart Airport access card. Credit card access is no longer available. You will need to link a valid credit card via the ZipBy app.
