Denpasar airport returns to operate

The ash cloud is directed to the south-southeast of the island of Bali.

Located on the island of Bali, Indonesia, the Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) in Denpasar city has returned to operate earlier than expected thanks to the ashes of the Agung volcano that have moved south-southeast of the island.

The problems began on Saturday night when flight cancellations began, after the Agung volcano released a cloud of ash over 4,000 meters high.

At 15:00 local time today, November 29, the airport began again to provide service. The airline Singapore Airlines was the first to return to operation, two aircraft departed from Singapore bound for Bali to operate two flights of the four that it normally owns, meanwhile it reported that it seeks regulatory approval to operate additional distress flights for passengers stranded by cancellations on November 27 and 28.

The other airlines will resume services gradually. It is estimated that it could take up to a week to get the passengers stranded on the island of Bali for all canceled flights.
