Bali Airport Shutdown
I’m in Jakarta now and making news is the closure of the Bali airport.
In a year of disruptive events, the airlift conundrum is due to a volcanic eruption in nearby Lombok at Mount Rinjani.
Yesterday close to 700 flights to the popular resort destination were canceled.
Officials are hopeful of a re-opening today but are taking a wait and see approach due to extensive volcanic ash in the area.
