Airlines helping Bali travel changes

The federal government is working to ensure Australians aren't penalised if they defer holidays to Bali because of a greater risk of terrorist attack following the execution of the Bali bombers.

Already Jetstar and Virgin Blue have waived charges for passengers who want to delay travel to the holiday island following the weekend executions of Amrozi, his brother Mukhlas and Imam Samudra.

Foreign Minister Stephen Smith has been warning young school leavers who are planning to have end-of-year celebrations in Bali to think again.

"I welcome the news that Jetstar and Virgin Blue - two of the airlines that have flights to Bali - have waived their fees for travellers wishing to change the date of their travel to Bali in November," he told parliament on Monday.
