A woman's been arrested after routine passenger screening at Launceston Airport.

Drug Dog Fang gave a positive signal, resulting in a 25-year-old Newnham woman being searched.

She's facing trafficking charges, allegedly in possession of 112 grams of ice.

The woman's out on bail ahead of a court appearance in early March.

“Seizures such as this significantly impact the availability and distribution of methylamphetamine or ‘ICE’ within the community," said Detective Senior Sergeant Matthew Shea of Northern Drug Investigation Services.
