Bali Volcano Eruption

Bali Volcano Mount Agung Eruption

On June 28, Mount Agung erupted again, spitting ash into the hemisphere. Even though the volcano had been active since last November, because of the ash cloud, airlines start to cancel their flights and the airport authorities in Bali decide whether to close the airport or not and for how long. Traveler's are advised to check with the airline offices and follow their twitter accounts.

Check the twitter feed below for the airport condition.

Emergency measures are well in place.

BNPB (Indonesia's Disaster Management Agency) is monitoring the situation closely and evacuates the Balinese who live within the evacuation zone, to make sure nobody will get hurt, in case a bigger eruption would occur.

Flight Status and Schedule Bali Airport, Transportation

You can check the current status of all flights coming into Bali and leaving Bali online on the website of the airport (click button below). Due to volcanic ashes some airlines will cancel flights at their own discretion even if the airport might be operational. 
Airport authorities provide free shuttle services from the airport to Mengwi bus station and to the harbour of Padang Bai. The ministry of transportation also provides buses to Surabaya International Airpoort for a ticket price of IDR 300,000 per person. The bus ride takes between 12 and 14 hours, including the ferry to Java. However, heavy rains and lots of traffic are causing traffic jams and delays.

Getting in touch with airlines

Please make sure your contact details that you gave the airline are up-to-date. Also the social media pages and websites of your airline should have all the necessary information. Try to call the callcenters first. Ticket offices in Bali are very crowded these days and you might have to wait for hours to get to the clerk.
