Cathay Pacific Airways advises passengers that its flights to and from Denpasar in Bali are expected to resume this morning (Saturday, 29 January). The airline plans to operate a total of three return services to and from the Indonesian island, including today’s scheduled flights and two services that were delayed from previous days due to the ash cloud situation.
However, there is still a possibility that the situation could change during the day and passengers are advised to check the airline’s website, www.cathaypacific.com, to get the latest updated information on their flights.
According to this morning’s forecast the ash cloud is still affecting certain areas of East Indonesia, and the airline’s scheduled service to Surabaya today, due to depart Hong Kong at 15.55, may be subject to delay.
