Jetstar: Thousands of Australians stuck in Bali due to canceled flights

Thousands of Australians have been stranded in Bali after several Jetstar flights were cancelled.

Since the beginning of September, flights between Australia and Bali have been canceled every day due to engineering problems.

Neil Mitchell told 3AW on Monday that between 1,000 and 4,000 people are trapped in Bali.

Some travelers have had to wait five days to rebook on another Jetstar flight after multiple cancellations.

Frustrated Australians have been venting on Jetstar since the problems began late last week.

“Jetstar flight from Bali to Sydney tonight is cancelled. Next flight in four days, winner,” one person posted on the Bali Bogans Facebook page.

“On the way back from Bali my 12.45pm flight was rescheduled twice and if I don’t make it to Melbourne tonight I will lose my job,” another posted on Twitter.

A Jetstar spokesperson told NCANewswire that some flights between Australia and Bali’s capital Denpasar had been canceled due to “engineering requirements.”

“Unfortunately, we had to cancel some services between Australia and Denpasar due to engineering requirements,” they said.

“We sincerely apologize for the frustration and inconvenience this outage has caused our customers.

“Our teams are looking at all options to get passengers on the road as quickly as possible, including seating on Qantas flights and operating ad hoc services where possible.

“A flight credit or refund will also be made available to passengers who no longer wish to travel.”
