Bali - Mount Agung volcano

Bali Volcano - Possible eruption on Mount Agung - Added 25th September 2017 - Current 23rd October 2017

The volcano Mount Agung is located on the island of Bali, about 71 kilometres (44 miles) from the tourist destination Kuta. The Indonesian authorities have kept the alert level at the highest classification, meaning an eruption could be imminent.

The exclusion zone around the summit of Mount Agung extends as far out as 12 km (7.4 miles) from the crater.

There is no current danger to people in other parts of the island.

Ferries and fast boats between Bali and the neighbouring islands of Lombok and Java are also running as normal. 

Bali Airport, I Gusti Ngurah Rai International (DPS) is operating as normal. Airline activities around Bali airspace are still normal with passengers' arrival departure process maintained. Customers are advised to re-confirm flights with the airline directly before travelling. 

Anyone with concerns about travel in this area should contact their Booking Store for advice. 

Customers in the area are advised to follow the advice of the local authorities.
