Airlines have cut back on flights from Bali, fearing a return of plumes of volcanic ash. An erupting volcano closed the airport for most of this week before the winds changed and flights resumed.

Jetstar said it would cancel nine flights on Friday after meteorological officials warned the ash could hit operations at Bali airport, about 60 km (37 miles) southwest of the Mount Agung volcano.

Malaysia’s AirAsia Bhd said it would only operate out of Bali during the day, as the ash could impair visibility at night and wind conditions in the area were unpredictable.

Other airlines with regular Bali flights, including Singapore Airlines Ltd and Garuda Indonesia, have not posted website updates on Friday evening’s flight plans.
