Mount Agung Eruption and Airport Closure
Posted on 28 Nov 2017
Airport authority issues daily closure notice (within 24-hour window) due to volcanic ash cloud obstructing flight routes in high altitudes. Updated official notice can be found from their website https://bali-airport.com/id/berita/index (as well as their official facebook page) in conjunction with the Australian Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre in Darwin. Unfortunately they cannot determine the exact condition of flight routes beyond this 24-hour window; and hence, their official notice is issued daily (usually in early morning).
The effects of Mount Agung’s eruptions are only within 12 kilometer radius of the volcano which is the northeast areas of Bali such as Karang Asem regency. Kuta and Seminyak are located more than 75 kilometers away from the volcano and nothing has been felt or seen from Ubud either (which is 40 kilometers away from the volcano). Should the eruption develop to its worst, we can never feel or see the effects from Kuta except cancellations of flights.

If you must reschedule your flight due to airport closure, please ensure to book your flight ahead to secure your seat. Within 24 hours before your flight departure, please check on the above media for airport closure as sometimes airline companies fail to inform their passengers individually.
