Volcano forces Bali flight to be cancelled


AIR Niugini has cancelled a flight to Denpasar Airport in Bali, Indonesia, due to volcanic ash being spewed out by Mt Agung. The ash has forced the airport to close temporarily.
The airline said yesterday afternoon’s flight PX394/395 were cancelled.
“Passengers who wish to rebook for next Monday’s flight can do so with ticketing penalties waived,” it said.
“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.
“All passengers should contact an Air Niugini 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.”
