Air NZ postpones flights to Bali

  • 05/08/2015

Air New Zealand has postponed today's service to Bali after volcanic ash spewing from the Mount Raung volcano continues to play havoc with flights.

The daily flight from Auckland to Denpasar has been delayed by more than 12 hours from 4.30pm today to late tomorrow morning.

Air New Zealand joins Australian carriers Virgin and Jetstar who also cancelled or postponed flights to Bali earlier today.

Unfavourable winds are expected to continue throughout the day.

The volcano has disrupted flights since it began spewing the corrosive, silica-based ash in early July.
