Bali flights resume

Bali flights resume

FLIGHTS into Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport returned to normal over the weekend after the latest eruption of the Mt Agung volcano forced the closure of airspace on Thu night (TD Fri).

Thousands of travellers were stranded at the airport and others disrupted on the verge of school holidays after the volcano sent a cloud of ash more than 2,000m into the air.

Most flights resumed on Sat, with Virgin operating an additional recovery flight yesterday and Jetstar operating three additional services yesterday and today.

“Volcanic activity is unpredictable, so please be aware that conditions can change rapidly,” JQ said in a travel alert.

“We will update you immediately if there is any change to our schedule.”

Qantas said its senior pilots and meteorologists were continuing to monitor the situation.
