TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A number of commercial flights operated by Lion Air Group that were initially scheduled to arrive and depart from Banyuwangi airport in East Java, has officially been canceled. The airport has been temporarily closed due to safety concerns caused by the eruption of Mount Raung. 

"As essential information, the volcanic ash can damage aircraft structures or components which is a safety hazard for the aviation sector,” said Corporate Communications Strategic of Lion Air Group, Danang Mandala Prihantoro in a written statement on Tuesday, February 9.

The Banyuwangi volcano had been spewing volcanic ashes for the past couple of days. Based on official monitoring of the volcanic mountain, Mount Raung had released thick ash vertically up to 2,500 meters.
