Jakarta: Four airports in Indonesia were shut on Friday due to an ash cloud from a volcanic eruption in East Java.

According to the country's flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, Bali's Denpasar International Airport and three others in Lombok, Jember and Banyuwangi were closed down.

"Due to Mt Raung eruption, airport closure is only applied for Bali, Lombok, Banyuwangi, and Jember. While others are still operating normally," the airlines tweeted.

Mount Raung is one the most active volcanoes in Indonesia's Java island. It erupted on July 2 forcing the cancellation of a number of flights to Australia.

"All fights flying to and from Bali, Lombok, Jember and Banyuwangi are cancelled today until 10 p.m. or further notice," Garuda Indonesia tweeted.
