Australia’s Federal Police have left Hobart Airport, making it the only capital city airport in Australia not protected by the AFP. The duty will fall to the state police; in a move the Tasmanian government said is “disappointing”, especially in light of the increase to the national terror threat level. The state government had previously asked the AFP to review its decision to withdraw. AFP Commissioner Andrew Colvin said however that there is no specific threat to the airport, where commercial passenger flights New Zealand and Hobart used to operate. In more recent times the airport has been used only for domestic routes and the occasional flight to Antarctica.
