THAI Cancels Flights To Denpasar Due to Mount Agung Volcanic Eruption on Bali Island

Today, Thai Airways announced the cancellation of its flights from Bangkok to Denpasar in Bali as the erupting Mount Agung volcano on Bali Island, situated 75 kilometers far from Denpasar International Airport, caused volcanic ash clouds to hover over the air space vicinity. As a result, Denpasar International Airport on Bali Island announced that the airport will be temporarily closed from 27 November 2017 at 07.00 hours ( local time) until 28 November 2017 at 07.00 hours (local time), with all airlines ceasing flight departures and arrivals for safety reasons. This situation affects THAI’s flights TG431 and flight TG432 from 27th to 30th November 2017.

Due to high volume of calls experienced at present, we kindly ask to only contact us if travelling on the dates above.

THAI will continue to closely monitor and assess the situation at Mount Agung. If the conditions on Bali Island improve and THAI is able to conduct flights safely, THAI will resume normal flight operations from Bangkok to Denpasar accordingly.
