Launceston Airport has had its biggest year on record with 1.22 million passengers.

LAUNCESTON Airport is celebrating a record year, recording an 8 per cent surge in passengers in 2012-13 to 1.22 million.

Airport general manager Pamela Graham said a number of industry partners had played a role in achieving the bumper result.

"Our record growth has been largely driven through increased capacity by our airlines, with Qantas and Jetstar in particular boosting services," Ms Graham said.

"Pleasingly, and what can be seen as a vote of confidence in the Launceston market, Qantas and Jetstar increased services throughout the entire year as well as over the traditionally busy summer period."

Ms Graham said Tourism Tasmania's "go behind the scenery" campaign had provided a boost for passenger growth.

"Tourism Tasmania has been instrumental in forging stronger ties with the aviation industry through co-operative marketing campaigns and we urge the State Government to strengthen its support of the work that Tourism Tasmania is doing," she said.

The result follows similarly strong passenger figures for Hobart Airport, which also had its biggest year on record with two million passengers, a 12 per cent rise on the year before and double the figures from 10 years ago.
