AirAsia cancelled 6.30pm and 8pm flights on Thursday between Denpasar and Perth, as well as the 7.30pm Denpasar to Perth flight amid fears the ash could affect the aircraft engines.

Foreign tourists sit at a photo booth as their flight to Bali was canceledled due to Mount Agung's eruption, at Lombok International airport in Lombok Tengah, Indonesia, June 29, 2018.

Duty manager at Denpasar's Ngurah Rai International Airport, Darta Pande, said on Thursday that many flights would continue to operate.

Mt Agung caused widespread disruptions towards the end of 2017, throwing the travel plans of thousands of holidaymakers into chaos.

"Based on the meteorology agency prediction, the volcanic ash will reach the airport on Friday morning", airport spokesman Yanus Suprayogi said in a statement, adding that a possible extension of the airport closure after 7pm would be reviewed.

The regional volcanic ash advisory centre in Darwin, Australia, said winds could carry the ash southwest toward Java, Indonesia's most densely populated island.

Ngurah Rai global airport says all flights are suspended until at least 7pm local time (9pm AEST).

The volcano is about 75 kilometres from Bali's tourist hub in Kuta.


It had a dramatic increase in activity last year, forcing the evacuation of tens of thousands of people, but had quietened by early this year.

Air New Zealand said flight NZ245 from Auckland to Denpasar and the return flight NZ246 from Denpasar to Auckland have been cancelled today.

Long lines at airport in Bali as flights are cancelled or delayed.

On November 27, the Indonesian National Disaster Management Authority confirmed the threat level had been raised from Level Three to its highest possible number, Level Four.

The volcano's alert level remains moderate.

A danger zone has been set in a 4km area surrounding the volcano's crater and some 300 local residents from around the mountain were evacuated voluntarily.

When did Mount Agung last erupt? Its last major eruption in 1963 killed more than 1,000 people and razed several villages.
