School holidays ruined for Bali sun seekers as flights cancelled

Flight Centre said a number of airlines flying from Australia to Bali had also opted to cancel or delay flights overnight and today.

Three flights out of Perth to Bali and one returning have been cancelled tonight, as eruptions from Mount Agung again wreak havoc on travel schedules.

Another two Jetstar flights to Denpasar from Perth and Sydney were turned back.

"Due to volcanic ash cloud caused by Mount Agung in Bali, it is now not safe to operate flights to or from Denpasar Airport", Jetstar said in a statement.

The eruption sent an ash column of 2,500 meters into the air and a reddish flame was visible in Mount Agung's crater, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokesman for the agency said in the statement.

The AirAsia flight due to land at 7.30pm, QZ536, was the other Perth flight to be cancelled.

"Kiwis due to travel should speak with their travel expert as soon as possible so that they can check the status of their flight or contact their carrier to confirm".

More than 20 flights across Jetstar, Qantas, Virgin and Air Asia were disrupted between Thursday night and Friday morning due to the ash cloud moving toward Denpasar airport, which is now closed.

Mount Agung is about 70km northeast of Bali's tourist hotspot of Kuta.

Activity at the volcano was high last year and forced the evacuation of tens of thousands of people, but it had been quieter this year.

Indonesia is the world's most active volcanic region and lies on the Pacific "Ring of Fire" where tectonic plates collide, causing frequent volcanic and seismic activities.

Authorities were monitoring conditions, but the alert level on the volcano had not been raised so far.
