    Bali’s airport has been back open for business since it reopened last Wednesday afternoon after a nearly three-day shutdown, but not all airlines have been running full flight schedules.

    A total of 56 flights both inbound and outbound were cancelled on Monday, Ngurah Rai Airport spokesman Arie Ahsanurrohim said this morning to local reporters.

    “Today there are 56 flight schedules cancelled by the airline. For domestic, there were 24 flights and for international, there were 32 flights.

    “This is purely based on the policy of each airline,” Ahsanurrohim said.

    The spokesman explained that much of the flights getting called off were probably due to the impact of trip cancellations as a result of the ongoing eruption of Mount Agung.

    Of the cancelled domestic flights, 15 were arrivals and nine were departures. And for the international flights, 17 cancelled were arrivals, while 15 were departures.

    Among the airlines with cancelled inbound international flights on Monday were, Jetstar, Philippine Airlines, China Southern, AirAsia Indonesia, AirAsia Malaysia, China Eastern, Emirates, Tiger, Garuda Indonesia, and Cathay Pacific.

    Airlines with cancelled outbound international flights include Jetstar, Philippine Airlines, China Eastern, China Southern, AirAsia Indonesia, Royal Brunei, Tiger Airways, Garuda Indonesia, and AirAsia Malaysia.

    Airlines that pulled some domestic flights to Bali include Batik Air, AirAsia Indonesia, Lion Air, and Garuda Indonesia, while airlines that cut domestic departures from Bali include Garuda Indonesia and Lion Air.

    Ngurah Rai International Airport was closed on Nov. 27 at 7am due to ash clouds generated by Mount Agung, in the airport’s airspace and allowed to reopen on Nov. 29 at 3pom, thanks to a change in winds.
