  • Mount Agung is known to be an active volcano in the island with its last eruption occurring in November 2017

Garuda Indonesia's low-priced subsidiary, Citilink, resumed operations following the reopening of Ngurah Rai International Airport.

Virgin Australia has advised passengers the airport is due to reopen at 7pm local time (9pm AEST) on Friday.

Flight Centre said that Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar remains open however a number of airlines flying from Australia to Bali had also opted to cancel or delay flights overnight and today.

Citilink said it will continue all efforts to accommodate passengers seeking to continue their journey.

Indonesian authorities shut Bali's worldwide airport for a second time in seven months as a fresh eruption Thursday at Mount Agung near the popular tourist island sent volcanic ashes several miles high into the sky. "My stuff has been sitting on the ground for 24 hours, and don't have any accommodation", Australian traveller Caitlin Bigg said at the global terminal.

Jetstar scrapped flights to the tourist hotspot from Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane on Friday morning, while its flights leaving Bali - bound for the three capital cities and Cairns - were also cancelled.

Jetstar said on its travel alerts site on Thursday that it is not now safe to operate flights to or from Denpasar because of the volcanic ash cloud.

AirAsia strongly encouraged all passengers to update their contact details at airasia.com as their flight status would be notified via email and SMS.

The report further suggests that the sudden increase in the lava eruption has forced millions of people to evacuate the nearby regions of the volcanoes.

Local government seismologists monitor more than 120 active volcanoes.

This video of the eruption was shared online on June 28.

Agung towers over eastern Bali to a height of just over 3,000 meters (9,800 feet).

The initial numbers given were almost 450 flights cancelled and 75,000 travellers affected.
