Air Niugini’s flights to Denpasar airport, Bali, Indonesia has been cancelled due to continuous volcanic ash being spewed by Mt Agung.

This has resulted in the closure of Denpasar airport to all airlines for an indefinite period, Post Courier reports.

The airline company yesterday stated that its flight numbers PX 394/395 scheduled for yesterday afternoon were cancelled and they are continuing to closely monitor the situation. “Passengers who wish to rebook for next Monday’s flight can do so with ticketing penalties waived. “Those who still wish to travel this week after Denpasar airport reopens can do so by rerouting their travel via Singapore.

“Those who prefer to cancel their entire trip may do so, and will receive a full refund of Air Niugini fares,” the company said. The company advised that all passengers contact its sales office or travel agent for further information. “Air Niugini regrets the inconvenience caused, however the situation is beyond the airline’s control.

“Safety is always of paramount importance in Air Niugini’s operations. Further updates will be issued as new information comes to hand.”
