Jakarta:  Indonesian authorities reopened the main airport on the popular resort island of Bali on Saturday after its closure on Friday due to a volcanic eruption on nearby Java island, an airport official said.

"We have reopened since 10 am local time (0200 GMT). Flights have resumed," the airport`s general manager Trikora Harjo said.

Mount Raung in East Java has been erupting for nearly a week, forcing several airports in the region to close and causing widespread flight disruption on Friday. All of the airports, including Lombok international airport, have reopened.
