  • An Ethiopian Boeing 737 MAX departs after delivery from Boeing Field

The Boeing 737 Max 8 was one of 30 meant for the airline, Boeing said in July.

A man checks the wreckage of the airplane of Ethiopian Airlines (ET) which crashed earlier near Bishoftu city, about 45 kms southeast of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, March 10, 2019.

"We are now confirming the details of the passenger manifest for the flight", the airline said.

State-owned Ethiopian is one of the biggest carriers on the continent by fleet size.

Noting the "similarities" between the two accidents, China's Civil Aviation Administration said domestic airlines had until 6:00 pm local time (1000 GMT) to ground all 737 MAX 8 aircraft.

Weeping relatives begged for information at airports in Nairobi and Addis Ababa. The jet's last maintenance was on February 4, and it had flown just 1,200 hours.

The flight had unstable vertical speed after take off, said flight tracking website Flightradar24 on its Twitter feed.

The Boeing 737 Max 8 plane heading to Nairobi left Ethiopia's Addis Ababa International Airport this morning but came down within six minutes, killing all 149 passengers and eight crew members on board.

Ethiopian Airlines flight ET 302 crashed Sunday morning shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa, the airline said. Boeing planned to send a technical team to Ethiopia.

The senior Ethiopian Airlines pilot had flown more than 8,000 hours.

African air travel has improved in recent years, with the International Air Transport Association in November noting "two years free of any fatalities on any aircraft type".

Ethiopia Airlines released a statement stating they had lost contact with the flight just six minutes after it took off.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed tweeted confirming deaths but did not give a number.
