Concerns circulating social media about the use of private airstrips are misplaced.
A government spokesperson said Biosecurity Tasmania was advised of flight arrivals and pilots can only land at seven airstrips.
State Controller and Tasmania Police Commissioner Darren Hine implemented a direction, under the Emergency Management Act's regulation of aircraft movement, on March 27 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The direction meant commercial or chartered planes, originating from outside the state, may only land at Launceston, Hobart, Cambridge, Devonport, Burnie, King Island and Flinders airports.
The only exception is if an emergency landing is required or a landing at another airstrip has been pre-approved and authorised by Commissioner Hine.
Commissioner Hine has not granted any interstate flights an exemption.

A spokesperson for the State Control Centre said biosecurity was advised of flights arriving in the state.
They said anyone arriving in the state was subject to legal directions regardless of their mode of transport.
"Authorities are not aware of any flights arriving in Tasmania in breach of the direction regulation of aircraft movement," they said.
"All flights into Tasmania can be tracked by authorities using flight tracking.
"When Tasmania Police and Biosecurity Tasmania is made aware of a private charter arriving in Tasmania they are met by representatives from those authorities and dealt with in accordance with the directions.
"This has occurred since border restrictions have been in place."
The direction by Commissioner Hine will remain until further notice.
