The embassy has also assigned officials to operate the hotline and make plans to send officials and vehicles to assist the Vietnamese citizens in Bali in case the volcano re- erupts.

Bali's airport was closed for two-and-a-half days earlier in the week owing to fears that ash from Agung could threaten flight safety.

More than 43,000 residents near the volcano in Karangasem regency in east Bali where Mount Agung lies, have been evacuated as of Thursday, three days after the alert status on the island was raised.

"Volcanic activity and ash cloud are unpredictable and flights may be cancelled at short notice", a Jetstar spokeswoman said in a statement on Thursday evening.

An orange VONA alert means a volcano "is exhibiting heightened unrest with increased likelihood of eruption, or volcanic eruption is underway with no or minor ash emission", according to the World Organisation of Volcano Observatories.

In relation to the first flight, she said: "I've been informed by a member of the hotel staff that it's a domestic flight rather than worldwide".

Singapore Airlines said it would resume flights between Singapore and Bali on Wednesday. It is seeking approval for extra flights, which is expected to be granted shortly.

Jetstar and Qantas have scheduled 10 flights and will put on up to eight additional relief flights to bring tourists back.

Australian budget carrier Jetstar Airways said some of its flights out of Bali planned for Friday had been cancelled "due to a sudden change in today's forecast for this evening in Bali".

Virgin Australia has cancelled all its Wednesday flights but is trying to arrange rescue services for Thursday and Friday. "Guests are advised to wait to hear from us before proceeding to the airport".

Flights reportedly resumed at 3 p.m. local time, with passengers packing check-in counters at the airport, which was closed on Monday morning following the eruption of Mt. Agung on Saturday. Only those booked to fly to Amsterdam on KLM's normal daily flight are legally entitled to a duty of care from the airline.

The worldwide airport on the neighbouring resort island of Lombok, which was closed on Thursday, reopened on Friday morning.
