Sleeping Rough

Hundreds of Passengers Stranded at Bali Airport February 14-15, 2014 Due to Mt. Kelud Flight Disruptions

(2/16/2014) The explosion of Mt. Kelud on the night of Thursday, February 13, 2014 disrupted hundreds of flights across Indonesia as 7 airports temporarily closed and hundreds of connecting fights were cancelled.

In Bali flight disruptions saw massive displacement of passengers on Friday, February 14, 2014 at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport.

Passengers reporting for flights that had been cancelled filled all the available chairs with floor space also occupied by sleeping passengers.

With airlines monitoring changes in flight conditions on an hour-by-hour basis, many passengers chose to wait at the airport as many flight services returned to normal over the weekend.

The State News Agency Antara reports that 43 scheduled domestic flights were cancelled at Bali’s airport while Virgin Airlines suspended international flights to and from Australia starting from Friday, February 14, 2014.
