The number of daily flights to Mekelle has increased to five and the number of flights to Shire has increased to nine per week, the statement said.

Necessary manpower is being deployed at all airlines to ensure adequate services to passengers.

However, it was revealed that certain employees and agents working with the airline were charging more than the stipulated fare.

The National Information and Security Service (NIS) has been monitoring the incident. Four individuals have been arrested and their cases are under investigation at the Mekelle Police Station.

Five agents working with Ethiopian Airlines have been suspended and their cases are being investigated.

Data consolidation work is underway to identify other stakeholders and take action.

The people were asked to be careful not to be fooled by illegals.
