Indonesia – Volcanic eruption

27 November, 2017

PT Pos Indonesia wishes to inform the designated operators of other Union member countries that the Government of Indonesia has temporarily closed Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport on the island of Bali owing to the eruption of Mount Agung. Large volumes of volcanic ash are now covering the airport area.

This situation may lead to in delays in handling inbound and outbound international mail to and from Bali, Lombok and Mataram, particularly postcode areas in the range 80000 to 83999.

PT Pos Indonesia asks designated operators of other Union member countries to forward their dispatches normally sent to IDDPSA to:

-       IDJKTA (Jakarta-Soekamo Hatta International Airport Office of Exchange) for EMS items;

-       IDJKTC (Jakarta Mail Processing Centre) for registered, parcel-post and LC/AO items.

PT Pos Indonesia thanks all designated operators for their understanding. It will update them via EmIS once the situation has returned to normal.
