#1 Bali's Denpasar airport closed again

Postby fountainhall » Fri Jun 29, 2018 12:25 pm

Bali's Mt Agung has erupted again yesterday afternoon spewing ash and smoke 2,500 meters into the air over the island. Close to 450 flight have so far been cancelled stranding 75,000 passengers. The closure is in effect until 7:00 pm today but may be extended. Worse, winds are likely to blow the ash towards south west Java. This latest eruption follows a dramatic increase in the volcano's activity at the end of last year which resulted in the evacuation of tens of thousands of locals and tourists nearby.

If you have a trip planned for this weekend, best you check with your airline or the Ngurah Rai airport's website. ... epartures/
