Bali Flts. CX due Volcanic Ash - ABC News

Jetstar cancels Bali flights due to Mt Raung volcanic ash cloud heading for Denpasar

Updated 19 minutes agoFri 3 Jul 2015, 7:41am


Map: Bali

Jetstar has cancelled flights in and out of Bali as an ash cloud from a volcanic eruption in Indonesia drifts towards Denpasar International Airport.
Return flights to and from Cairns, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney, and one way flights to and from Singapore, Adelaide and Darwin are affected.
In a statement on its website, the airline said passengers on rescheduled or cancelled flights would be notified by Jetstar or their travel agent directly and provided with options to fly on alternative services.
Overnight, two Jetstar flights were turned back three hours into their journey.
The airline is planning to issue an update once it is daylight in Indonesia.
The ABC believes that Qantas staff in Darwin are preparing to announce delays.
There are no disruption notices from other airlines including Virgin Australia, AirAsia X and Garuda, which are continuing to fly at this stage.
Mt Raung, on nearby Java, erupted on Sunday, with airline pilots reporting ash at 3,500 metres.

I used to fly past Mt Raung when doing the Surabaya to Bali run. Here it is back in 2012 when it was smoking. We're at FL150 if I remember correctly. Mt Raung peaks at about 11,000 ft.

Not strange at all. Be reminded they flew a A320 through the ash last year, 2 new expensive engines later sounds like they have learnt their lesson

I overheard on BN CTR a JQ flight bound for Bali divert to Darwin (I think), about an hour ago so perhaps it's got worse?

Appears all Australian carriers have diverted and cancelled.

Asian carriers continue operations though.

Always amazes me Aussie operations cancel other go.

Air Asia still flying Jetstar not. Must make it hard to explain to pax!

I'd much prefer the erring on the side of safety.

Just need screen the famous BA747 ash encounter in the waiting room!

JQ 37 landing 2 hrs after advisory

The rules must have changed. JQ37 is at TOD for DPS 110 minutes after the latest update, which looks the same as the previous 2 stand downs.

VA 70 also departed 60 minutes after the advisory.

Ash

No more delays?

Heard it's rumbling again? More delays at busy times?

Or just book Asian Airlines?

Is there any particular reason why other airlines are still flying in and around Bali?

Do they not take their safety regulations as serious as Australia?

Any insight would be appreciated. I have a relative over there who is considering flying with another airline, but I have told her to stay put and travel with an Australian carrier.
