Despite the reopening of Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport, the continuing “highest alert status” for the Mount Agung Volcano, the general manager of Angkasa Pura, Yanus Suprayogi, reports that 35 international flights have been cancelled to Bali

As reported by, Suprayogi said on Wednesday, December 13, 2017, that the downturn in international flights is between 40 to 50% dominated by flights from Mainland China and Japan. He also said that domestic flights have also been cancelled.

Suprayogi said the decline in passengers is between 40-50% from an average 60,000 domestic and international passengers per day. That number he says is now nearer to 30,000 passengers. The Angkasa Pura official was not prepared to say if the reduction in flights would last until the New Year holiday period.

Meanwhile, the Airport Authority is making every effort to provide information to the airline community while striving to provide excellent service to the airlines and the passenger now traveling through the Bali airport.

In the event of any closure of the Airport due to volcanic dust in the flight paths to and from Bali, plans are in place to provide alternate land transportation to nearby airports in Java for passengers not able to wait for the airport to reopen. The closure of the airport in late November lasted only 2.5 days.

Yanus Suprayogi also called on the media to provide balanced reporting on Bali. He said many new sources are failing to report that tourism objects in Bali remain safe to visit and enjoy. Instead, they have focused on the volcano eruption and the evacuation of those living near Mount Agung – an exclusion zone representing just 2% of the Island’s landmass.

He said the poor reporting has resulted in exaggerated travel warnings to be issued by some Countries suggesting that Bali holidays should be delayed.
