Bali flights to & from Australia and elsewhere – More UPDATES

by on November 27, 2015
 

An update on how to find the latest information about flight disruptions, depending on your airline and location.

September/October 2017 – Please check with your airline to see if your flights are affected by the current situation with Mt Agung experiencing internal rumblings. Many of the links in this story will go to updated airline links.

29th November: Due to the volcanic eruption at Mt Rinjani on Lombok Island near Denpasar (Bali), the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM)  Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre have advised that any eruptions are now minor and ash has generally dissipated. Conditions in the vicinity of Denpasar Airport have improved with variable winds and the advisory has ceased although the situation continues to be monitored. Conditions for flying are favourable. Please note that this may change if eruptions resume as it depends on the location and height of any smoke plumes.

The Denpasar airport website and their update links are all in Bahasa Indonesia, so please enable translation facilities on your browser. They are currently updating information on the current situation infrequently, only in Bahasa Indonesia with no translation on the site. Please check your flight status on the airline site.

If you have a flight departing to or from Bali, you should also check the flight status (see the links below) in case there are changes in the situation. 

Check the links for more specific information by clicking on on the Airline Names below. Please be aware that the volcano may continue to erupt, so with unpredictable winds, the on-going situation is impossible to predict. Affected airlines will reassess the situation on an on-going basis and make the necessary updates.
