      Korean tourists who were stranded in Bali, Indonesia due to the eruption of Mount Agung returned home on Thursday.

      A chartered Korean Air flight brought 179 passengers back home, and an Asiana Airlines flight with 266 landed at Incheon International Airport on Friday morning. 

      Korean tourists arrive at Incheon International Airport on Thursday after being stranded in Bali.

      Ngurah Rai International Airport on Bali, which was closed on Monday after Mount Agung erupted, resumed operations on Wednesday.

      The volcanic ash cloud changed directions and moved away from the airport.

      About 120,000 travelers including 575 Koreans were stranded as 880 flights at airports on the resort island were canceled over two days.
