Virgin Australia cancel all Bali flights due to volcanic ash

Virgin Australia has cancelled all flights to and from Denpasar Airport today because of an ash cloud from a volcanic eruption at Mt Raung in Indonesia.

In a statement Virgin said – “The latest advice from our team of meteorologists and the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre is that conditions are not suitable for operations into and out of Denpasar Airport today.”

“We have been advised that Mt Raung continues to erupt and winds are blowing in an unfavourable direction, and are forecast to continue to do so for the rest of the day.”


“Therefore Virgin Australia has cancelled all flights into and out of Denpasar today, Thursday 6 August.”


Guests are advised not to present at airports and not to call the Guest Contact Centre in regards to their flight options at this time as there are longer than usual wait times – guests will be updated via SMS and our website.
