THAI cancels Bangkok-Denpasar flights on Nov 27-30

Thai Airways International, the national flag carrier, has cancelled its flights on Bangkok-Denpasar route between Nov 28-30 after Mount Agung on the resort island of Bali erupted.

The volcano on Bali is 75 kilometres from Denpasar airport. The eruption has sent volcanic ash into the sky and to cover surrounding areas.

Denpasar airport has been ordered closed to take-off and landing of all airlines from 7am (local time) on Nov 27 to 7am on Nov 30.

This forces THAI to cancel Flight TG 431 (Bangkok-Denpasar) and Flight TG 432 (Denpasar-Bangkok) on Nov 27-30.

THAI Flight TG 431 usually departs from Suvarnabhumi airport at 8.50am and arrived at Denpasar at 2.15pm, while Flight TG 432 departs from Denpasar at 4.10pm and arrive at Suvarnabhumi airport at 7.25pm.

Passengers who plan to fly to and from Bali on the two flights are advised to check the flight schedule on website or call THAI Contact Centre at 02-356-1111 around the clock.

Passengers with tickets for the two flights between Nov 27 and Dec 10 will be exempted from paying the fee for ticket changes.
