Bali volcano: Airport reopens as stranded tourists begin to leave island

Think the Bali Volcano Was Bad? Eruptions Will Only Increase as Climate Change Gets Worse

Bali's airport was closed for two-and-a-half days earlier in the week owing to fears that ash from Agung could threaten flight safety.

Jetstar tweeted: "We are planning to operate scheduled services and relief flights from Bali to Australia". However, Indonesia's President Joko Widodo and the authorities are warning that this could return very fast if volcanic activity increases and ash clouds are emitted, so grounding commercial aircraft all over again.

However, due to developments of Mount Agung, the embassy will continue keep a close watch on the situation.

Now, though, the wind has switched to a south-east direction, and the volcanic ash plume has subsided from 21,000 feet to 8,000 feet according to the latest bulletin.

However, Jetstar and Qantas said they would not be taking any passengers from Australia into Bali, "given the likelihood of further volcanic activity and the potential that conditions change and lead to diversions or further cancellations".

In relation to the first flight, she said: "I've been informed by a member of the hotel staff that it's a domestic flight rather than worldwide". But it has already cancelled links from Bali to Melbourne and Sydney. The global airport in Bali has also been re-opened, allowing some airlines to resume operation in the area. It is seeking approval for extra flights, which is expected to be granted shortly.

Jetstar and Qantas have cancelled all flights from Bali this afternoon because of new information on the movement of the ash cloud.

"He has said that they are doing domestic flights but doesn't think they're risking global at the moment".

Some flights were cancelled on Friday even though the airport remained open. "Guests are advised to wait to hear from us before proceeding to the airport". Only those booked to fly to Amsterdam on KLM's normal daily flight are legally entitled to a duty of care from the airline.

Bali governor I Made Mangku Pastika has extended a state of emergency on the popular resort island to Dec 10 as it braces for what could be a major eruption of Mount Agung volcano in the days ahead.

The global airport on the neighbouring resort island of Lombok, which was closed on Thursday, reopened on Friday morning.
