TD breaking news – Jetstar, Virgin Australia cancel more Bali flights

Volcanic ash cloud drifting back to Denpasar Airport

Jetstar has joined Virgin Australia in again cancelling Bali flights as a result of “unfavourable winds” causing further ash from the erupting Mount Raung to drift into flight corridors. 

Earlier this morning Virgin Australia said “conditions are no longer suitable for operations” and elected to cancel all flights into and out of Denpasar Airport.

“We will continue to monitor the situation closely. The safety of our guests and crew is our highest priority and we will keep customers updated as new information becomes available,” Virgin Australia said, adding it would provide a further update later this afternoon on tomorrow’s operations.

A short time ago, Jetstar confirmed it had cancelled all flights scheduled to depart Bali this morning.

We will make a second assessment based on an updated advisory around 5pm to determine whether or not evening flights can operate. As a result, we have moved to delay our evening departures by a few hours,” Jetstar said.

“We remain committed to operating additional services in and out of Bali when flying conditions allow it, to ensure we get our customers travelling again as soon as it safe to do so,” the Australian budget carrier added.

Since resuming flights to Bali yesterday, Jetstar has operated seven flights to and from the Indonesian holiday island, bringing 1,000 customers back to Australia.

Passengers are advised to check the status of their flight on the respective airline’s websites for the latest information.
