Volcanic ash halts flights to north Australian city

Bishkek (AKIpress) - trv-art-Sangeang-Api-Volcano-20140602105638635225-620x349 Volcanic plumes continue to billow from the Sangeang Api volcano causing two flights to be cancelled and one delayed affecting holiday makers travelling to Bali on Monday.

Two Jetstar flights out of Perth were cancelled on Monday – the 5.10am flight to Denpasar and the 7.30am flight Singapore via Denpasar – due to the ash from the Sangeang Api volcano off the Indonesian island of Sumbawa, AFP said.

A Virgin Australia flight from Brisbane to Denpasar, which was scheduled to depart at 10.10am on Monday, was delayed until midday.

Qantas reported there were no cancellations due to the ash plume, but it would keep travellers updated.

Eighteen Jetstar flights, 12 Virgin flights and 10 Qantas flights were cancelled over the weekend due to the volcanic ash from the Sangeang Api volcano.
