The Boeing 737 was flying from Addis Ababa to Nairobi with 149 passengers and 8 crew when Bole International airport lost contact with the plane at 8.44am.
Passengers from 33 countries were killed when flight ET302 crashed.
The Foreign Office could not confirm if any Britons were onboard but Kenya’s transport secretary said seven had been killed.
