Flights from Melbourne to Bali were cancelled on Saturday night as a massive volcanic ash cloud from Indonesia sweeping across Australia threatens to disrupt air travel for days.

indonesia-volcanoFlights to and from Darwin are resuming after being grounded by an ash cloud from an Indonesian volcano.

Early on Sunday afternoon the plumes affecting Australian airspace were expected to be clear over the Darwin region, the Darwin Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre said on Sunday.

Qantas announced it had resumed its flights, while Virgin, Air Asia and Jetstar had also resumed operations, Darwin International Airport spokeswoman Virginia Sanders told AAP.
