Bali volcanic ash easing, but flights still cancelled

AUSSIES stranded in Bali are closer to returning home.

Virgin Australia says volcanic ash from the erupting Mt Rinjani is beginning to ease, making flying conditions around Denpasar Airport safer.

The airline a few moments ago said it was planning to operate some flights from Bali to Australia today as long as "conditions do not deteriorate."

However, all Virgin services departing Australia for Bali remained cancelled.

"As Mt Rinjani continues to erupt and flying conditions remain unpredictable in the days to come, our priority is to bring guests home from Bali, rather than fly more guests in who could potentially be delayed in returning home due to ongoing eruptions," the company said in a press release.

"Virgin Australia has also offered passengers who have not yet commenced their journeys to Bali the option of travelling to a number of alternative holiday destinations."
