Lombok International AirportLombok International Airport, after the devastating volcanic eruption from Mount Agung, reopened at 6 am on Monday after halting its operations at 5:55 pm on Sunday.

 

 

LIA general manager I Gusti Ngurah Ardita said that apart from referring to a NOTAM (notice to airmen), they also carried out monitoring. The conditions were conducive to a reopening, which will be helpful for the tourists, who flock in Bali in this time as Bali is now in peak tourism season.

Meanwhile, the operational director of state-run air navigation company Airnav Indonesia, Wisnu Darjono, said that with the reopening of the airport, it would immediately serve the airport users that had crowded the airport since the closure. He also said that his company closely monitored the volcano to ensure the safety of the airport users. LIA general manager I Gusti Ngurah Ardita also explained that the NOTAM was issued on Sunday because the volcanic ash of Mount Agung had spread to the neighboring province, covering the air surrounding the airport. Twenty-three flights from 10 airlines from Lombok International Airport  were affected as a result of the closure.
