Rinjani volcano (Lombok): news & activity updates

Rinjani volcano (Lombok, Indonesia): eruption continues, but Bali airport operating again

The eruption of the volcano continues to produce intense ash emissions. However, to the great relief of travelers to and from Bali, the strong easterly winds that had swept the plume over Bali during the past days, forcing the Denpasar International airport to shut down, have ceased and given way to weak southerly and northerly winds, thus allowing the airport to reopen.
Some Australian airlines have been adding extra flights to Bali to help the many stranded travelers return home.
On this morning's satellite image, the ash plume can be seen hovering in N-S direction across Lombok island, while Bali was free of ash. However, easterly winds are likely to pick up again soon, which could cause significant flight disruptions again.
