SINGAPORE Airlines’ (SIA) flights to and from Bali are back to normal, after a number of its services to the island were cancelled or delayed yesterday due to increased volcanic activity from Mount Bromo in East Java.
“We have not heard of any cancellation or delay reports today,” said SIA spokesperson Glory Henriette.
According to a statement on SIA’s website, two flights (SQ946 and SQ947) were cancelled yesterday, while SQ948 from Singapore to Denpasar was rescheduled to depart this morning. SQ941 from Denpasar to Singapore, originally due to fly this morning, had been rescheduled to depart this afternoon.
Other carriers have not yet resumed normal services to Bali.
Cathay Pacific’s CX785 service to Denpasar yesterday was en route from Hong Kong to Bali, but was forced to return and land at Hong Kong International Airport, according to a statement on its website. The flight, originally rescheduled to depart this morning, has been further delayed and will fly tomorrow morning.
Jetstar flights today – VF541 and JQ117 from Singapore to Denpasar, and JQ116 and VF542 from Denpasar to Singapore – have been cancelled.
Meanwhile, SilkAir manager Indonesia Joseph confirmed that the carrier’s flight between Singapore and Lombok was also cancelled yesterday.
