Many travellers to Bali were in for massive disappointment as several flights to Indonesia's island because of a volcanic eruption.

Mount Agung spewed smoke and ash into the skies, forcing several major airlines to cancel flights. News agency AFP reported that Air Asia had to terminate 22 flights while Australia's JetStar axed 14.

The airline companies are leaving nothing to chance and decided to cancel flights despite Indonesian authorities saying that planes were in no danger. The eruption though comes as another massive blow for the extremely-lucractive tourism industry of Bali which suffered for the same reason last year as well.

Local reports suggest that a no-go zone has been established for four kilometres around the peak of Mount Agung and that disaster relief agencies are on the alert. Arrangements are being made for tourists already in Bali to leave.
