Dec 15 (Reuters) - The U.S. Transportation Department has found no wrongdoing by five top U.S. airlines and ended a probe into whether they unfairly manipulated fares after a deadly Amtrak crash in 2015 snarled transportation between New York and Washington.

While fares did increase on many routes after the train derailment, prices also decreased in some markets, the department said in a letter to the airlines, posted on its website on Wednesday.
