Travellers to and from Hobart airport will be able to buy half-priced airfares from April until September.
The federal government on Sunday added Hobart to the list of destinations to receive subsidised air travel under its $1.2 billion tourism package.
People can receive the subsidy for bookings from April to the end of July.

Flights up until the end of September will be eligible for the subsidy.
Tasmanian Liberal senator Jonathon Duniam said now every Tasmanian airport was eligible for the subsidy.
"Burnie, Devonport, Launceston and now Hobart will truly benefit from this scheme," he said.
"More importantly, the tens of thousands of tourism businesses across our state ... will all benefit from this scheme and the thousands of people who work in these businesses too."
Hobart Airport chief executive Norris Carter said airport traffic had been up to 55 per cent of pre-COVID levels.
He said passenger numbers would be bumped up to 80 per cent in April.
"This will help us get well on the road back to 100 per cent," Mr Carter said.
Tourism Industry Council Tasmania chief executive Luke Martin said Tasmania was the most tourism-dependent jurisdiction in the country and Hobart was the most tourism-dependent capital city.
"We know confidence is a major issue for operators at the moment," he said.
"If we can give people incentives to travel, we can give them confidence to start booking."
