Some flights between Australia and southeast Asia and all domestic flights operating out of Darwin airport in the north of the country were cancelled yesterday after the eruption of Sangeang Api in south Indonesia produced a large cloud of ash.

Flights to and from Australia to Singapore, East Timor and the Indonesian island of Bali were among those cancelled, including those departing from Australia's eastern seaboard, after the cloud from Sangeang Api's initial eruption on Friday evening tracked across central Australia.
