Why Volcanic Ash Clouds Interrupt Bali Holidays

If your holiday plans were recently affected by the eruption of Bali’s Mount Agung and resulting ash cloud, you may be wondering why these natural phenomena cause such chaos for airlines. Although disruption was relatively minimal on this occasion, with most flights simply delayed by a day or two, a similar event in 2015 had far more disruptive results.

The Most Annoying Habits of Plane Passengers

Travelling on a plane can be a stressful experience regardless of whether you are flying short haul or long haul. There’s a busy airport to contend with, your luggage and the never-ending security line – and that’s all before you even get on the plane! If, like most of us, you can only afford to economy flights then you’re lumped in with everyone else in those cramped and uncomfortable seats. Still, it’s not the seats (or even the questionable food choices) that bothers people so much. It turns out it’s actually their fellow passengers that tend to get on people’s nerves.

Bali Holidays Int-Erupted: Why Volcanic Ash Clouds Ground Flights

In 2015 and 2016 Bali volcanoes erupted and their resulting ash cloud caused the cancellation of a number of flights between Australia and Bali. For many travellers, their Bali holidays were either cancelled, or extended for up to 2 weeks – whether they wanted them to be or not. However there’s no need to be afraid of Bali’s volcanoes or volcanic ash clouds, and major disruptions are pretty rare. In fact tourists have an interesting relationship with Bali and its volcanoes. They’re both drawn to them as mysterious and majestic tourist attractions but also wary of the disruptions they can cause to their travel plans. Still, it’s interesting to discover just what it is about volcanic ash clouds that make them so dangerous for airplanes. As you’ll see, there’s a lot more to it than just needing to switch on the windscreen wipers.
