Axum airport in the Tigray region will resume its operations on June 9, 2024. The resumption of flights to Tigray is expected to boost the tourism sector, which had been heavily affected by the conflict. Axum airport was out of service for the last four years as it was damaged during the war.

According to Axum Mayor Abebe Birhane, the restoration effort was a collaborative project between the federal government and partners to restore the airport to its full functionality.

Axum Airport is crucial to the city’s economic and social well-being, as it supports tourism and business activities. The mayor emphasized the importance of maintaining peace and harmony in the city, particularly as the airport reopens and visitors begin to arrive. He emphasized that residents must work together to ensure the city remains safe and welcoming to all guests.

Axum is a city with a rich history and culture. The mayor said that the city will continue to invest in hotels, tourism, and services to help it grow. The mayor explained that when the airport reopens, it will help the local economy by allowing people from Tigray who have been away from their families for a long time to visit and reconnect.

At the end of last month, Ethiopian Airlines announced that after the launch of flights to Axum in the Tigray region, Ethiopian Airlines will also start flights to the city of Nekemte in the Oromia region. Flights to Nekemte will start on June 17, 2024.
