Four flights scheduled to arrive at the Bali Ngurah Rai Airport on Sunday (5/12) failed to land due to bad weather.
The Stakeholder Relation Manager of Bali Ngurah Rai Airport, Taufan Yudhistira, confirmed that four flights that were supposed to land at Bali Airport on Sunday were forced to land at other airports due to heavy rains and strong winds.
“The extreme weather forced these airplanes to look for other airports as they failed to arrive at our airport as scheduled,” Yudhistira said on Monday (6/12).
Yudshitira explained that one flight from Jakarta turned back to Soekarno-Hatta Airport, two flights were diverted to Juanda Airport in Surabaya, and the other one from Makassar was rerouted to Soekarno-Hatta Airport. This was done to avoid the extreme weather that may cause accidents.
However, he stated that the Bali airport had already resumed its normal operations on Monday as the storm was over.
Additionally, Yudhistira confirmed that the recent eruption of Mount Semeru didn’t affect the operations of Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport, as the wind didn’t blow the volcanic ashes to the island.
“Our airport’s operations were back to normal by Monday morning and the recent eruption of Mount Semeru didn’t affect our airport,” Yudhistira concluded.
