Ethiopian Airlines plane crashes en route to Nairobi

An Ethiopian Airlines flight has crashed on its way to Nairobi. A tweet posted on the Ethiopian prime minister’s Twitter account sent condolences to families who lost loved ones.

The Ethiopian prime minister’s official Twitter account on Sunday expressed condolences to families of those lost in an Ethiopian Airline’s flight to Nairobi.
“The office of the PM, on behalf of government and people of Ethiopia, would like to express its deepest condolences to the families that have lost their loved ones on Ethiopian Airlines
Boeing 737 on regular scheduled flight to Nairobi, Kenya this morning,” the PM’s office said on Twitter.

The flight had 149 passengers and eight crew members aboard, said an Ethiopian Airlines spokesman.
The plane dropped from radar six minutes after departing from Addis Ababa, according to aviation analyst Alex Macheraas, who tweeted the ill-fated jet was a brand new Boeing 737 MAX delivered to the airline just four months ago.
“This is the second major, fatal accident involving the Boeing 737 MAX in less than five months, including November’s Lion Air flight crash,” Macheras told DW.
