Mount Agung Volcano Forces Bali Airport to Close

An increase in the amount of ash, smoke and general activity from Mount Agung volcano in Bali has led authorities to close Denpasar International Airport.

The airport, the main gateway to one of the region's most popular tourist destinations, closed this morning (27 November 2017) and will remain closed until at least 07:00 on 28 November 2017 and most likely until further notice, depending on how the situation with the volcano develops.

All arriving and departing flights have been cancelled.

Authorities are monitoring the situation and travellers affected by the airport closure - both incoming and outgoing - should contact their airline and hotel directly.

The  airport is around 70 kilometres from the current exclusion zone around the volcano.

More on this to come.
