Flights to Bali from Australia have resumed after an ash cloud from a volcanic eruption at Mount Raung in Indonesia was found not to be a threat.

Jetstar says all its flight today will go ahead as normal. Several flights were cancelled yesterday.

The airline’s operational team assessed flying conditions with the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre this morning and determined it was safe to fly again.

“We regret the impact these cancellations have had on our passengers, particularly during the busy school holiday period, but we will always put safety before schedule,” a spokesman said.

“We will continue to closely monitor volcanic activity in the region.”

Jetstar is looking at putting on more flights to ensure those disrupted yesterday can get to Bali.

Flights due today:

  • Q83 – Darwin-Denpasar
  • JQ107 – Denpasar-Perth
  • JQ117 – Singapore-Denpasar / Denpasar-Perth

Qantas doesn’t fly directly to Darwin.

Virgin Australia didn’t cancel any flights an is operating a normal flight schedule today.
