China repels flights from Bali

World December 4, 2017 10:54

shanghai - The Chinese aviation service refuses flights from Bali on Monday until the threat has passed through volcanic ash.

On the Indonesian tourist island, the volcano Agung has, for some time now, emitted fire and ashes to a large extent.

The authorities in Bali already banned all air traffic last week, but rescinded that decision after a few days. The volcano is a few dozen kilometers from the international airport. Most airlines resume their flights soon. China Eastern Airlines and China Southern Airlines are currently not bringing tourists to Bali anymore.

Chinese airlines bring most tourists to the island. They accounted for a quarter of the passengers for the 4.9 million that were flown to Bali this year from January to September.
