AirAsia Continues Bali Operations

8th Dec 2017

Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia Berhad has announced that it will resume services to and from Bali now that the weather conditions have improved. In addition, the airline is also offering to compensate customers who had previously booked a ticket to Bali as well as the nearby Lombok Island. The airline is offering these passengers a choice between several recovery options.

In a statement the airline said:

For flights from Nov 25 until Dec 10, guests can pick to move flight and change to a new travel date on the same route within 30 calendar days from the original flight date without additional cost and subject to seat availability. They can also retain the value of fare in their AirAsia BIG Loyalty account for future travel with the airline or obtain full refund in the amount equivalent to their booking, via the e-form available on

AirAsia is also offering a similar compensation option for travelers who booked flights between 11th and 31st December, but they won’t have the option of a full refund.

The carrier also advised customers to first check its website or Twitter page @AirAsia for the status of their flight before going to the airport.

Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali was closed for several days following the recent activities from Mount Agung. It reopened on 29th November. Most of the airlines operating to and from the island have resumed operations in the meantime.
