According to the Indonesian Transportation Ministry, flights arriving and departing from Bali currently remained as scheduled.

Following an eruption on Mount Agung on Nov 21, which emitted grey smoke as high as 600 metres, the National Agency for Disaster Management had issued a warning for those staying near the area, climbers, visitors and tourists to not be in the Danger Estimate Zone or carry out activities there.
