Python: converting PIL.Image to nympy array and back, resizing image

The example, I have used today:
import PIL
import numpy
from PIL import Image

def resize_image(numpy_array_image, new_height):
    # convert nympy array image to PIL.Image
    image = Image.fromarray(numpy.uint8(numpy_array_image))
    old_width = float(image.size[0])
    old_height = float(image.size[1])
    ratio = float( new_height / old_height)
    new_width = int(old_width * ratio)
    image = image.resize((new_width, new_height), PIL.Image.ANTIALIAS)
    # convert PIL.Image into nympy array back again
    return array(image)
