The eruption of Mount Agung on Saturday afternoon has affected the schedule of at least 16 flights operated by four airlines despite assurances that the airport is operating as normal. 

"The airport is still operating as normal. However, regarding the cancellations, they [the airlines] made their decision based on their evaluation of risk and consideration of safety,” I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport spokesman Arie Ahsanurrohim said. 

Arie said the four airlines are Virgin Airlines, Jetstar Airways, Qantas Airways and KLM.

The twelve departures affected include from Bali to Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne by Jetstar, to Brisbane by Virgin Airlines, and two to Sydney and one to Amsterdam by KLM.

Arie added that no flights had been diverted to airports close to Bali. (dmr)
