Jetstar Resumes Flights To Bali After Mt Agung Volcano Erupts

Flights to and from Bali were cancelled across many airlines over this weekend, leaving hundreds of travellers stranded.

The news came as Bali’s Mt Agung volcano erupted for the second time this week, covering the sky with thick grey clouds of smoke.


This morning, Jetstar has announced it will be recommencing flights.

“Our senior pilots, using information and forecasts from the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre, have assessed the latest conditions in Bali following the eruption of Mount Agung and deemed that conditions have improved and it is safe to fly,” they have explained in a statement on their website.

“Most scheduled flights to and from Bali today will operate.

“The volcano and movement of ash cloud are highly unpredictable and flights are subject to change at short notice based on assessment of safety to fly.

The budget airline has listed the flights which will commence on their website here, as well as which flights will remain cancelled.

Just three flights have been listed as cancelled:

JQ101 Bali-Townsville
JQ117 Singapore-Bali
JQ117 Bali-Perth
